This weekend traffic officers braved the cold weather to make sure that roads remain safe for drivers. Muqammad Mustapha from the traffic services said they conducted several operations over the Bellville, Hout Bay, Delft, Sea Point and Claremont area.

“Fifty-seven drivers were arrested for driving under the influence”

The officials issued 1 177 traffic fines for failing to display number plates, overtaking in unsafe areas, a number of vehicle defects and not wearing seatbelts.

Mustapha warned motorists that drunk driving will not be tolerated because it destroys lives.

Richard Bosman, Executive Director of Safety & Security and Mr Andre Nel, Deputy Chief for Traffic Services, visited the sites this weekend.
