Community Safety MEC in the Western Cape Lennit Max urged the local public transport industry to clean up its act for the festive season.

Advocate Max met with public transport bosses over the weekend.

He said if they are to reduce the number of casualties on the province’s roads they need taxi and bus drivers to be committed to safety.

Max said they are gearing themselves up for a bumper festive season and will embark on a major safety awareness campaign.

Speaking on his behalf his spokesperson Julian Jansen as government they want to see greater voluntarily compliance with all the rules and regulations applicable to the sector.

“We implore the companies not to cut corners as far as safety is concerned because in doing so they are considerably increasing risk factors to their passengers and other road users,” Jansen said.
