Operation reclaim a success

By Sasha Forbes

Since the beginning of January 2009 Operation Reclaim has held 122 check points using the licence plate recognition system (LPR), to apprehend errant motorists who fail to appear in Court. The LPR system is a camera which recognises the registration numbers of approaching vehicles, feeds the information through a computer, and alerts the operator if there are any warrants outstanding.

“Yesterday, nine people were arrested on 49 outstanding warrants to the value of R49 550. One motorist was arrested on 26 warrants valued at R30 800, and appeared in the municipal court,” said Cape Town Traffic Services’ Inez Lackay

“Motorists are urged to ensure that when they receive a notice to appear in Court, they should pay their fines either on or before the stipulated dates to avoid being summoned. When they fail to appear in Court on the dates specified, they run the risk of being found in contempt of Court. Warrants are not only executed during our check points, but we also visit your homes and places of work”, advised Lackay.
