Cape Town Traffic Services targeted offenders who illegally use the BMT lane during peak hour traffic yesterday.

A Ghost Squad member stopped a Mazda LDV early yesterday morning for the illegal use of the bus lane.

Traffic services spokesperson Kevin Jacobs says the driver of the vehicle was subjected to a sobriety test which included a breathalyzer test.

A reading of 1.82 was recorded, which is almost seven times over the legal limit of 0,05grams of alcohol per 100ml of blood.

“A 46-year old driver was arrested and a case docket was opened at the Mowbray Police Station,” said Jacobs.

122 bus lane offences,32 unlicensed drivers and 20 unlicensed motor vehicles were among the offences recorded during the three hour operation.
