City of Cape Town Traffic Services says they have managed to maintain normal service delivery levels during the World Cup period, despite the deployment of many additional traffic officials.

The additional traffic personnel were deployed to the Cape Town Stadium, FIFA Fan Fest™ and the four fan jols across the city.

Traffic officials add that various specialised units have also intensified their enforcement operations.

“Traffic Services began preparing for the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ long before the first whistle was blown,” officials say in a statement.

Since the start of the tournament two weeks ago various specialised Traffic Services units recorded more than four thousand offences, including 830 driving violations, 721 taxi-related offences and 279 offences related to passenger overloads.

In addition, 12 motorists were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, 20 taxi drivers for permit-related offences, and two drivers for reckless or negligent driving.

Officials have appealed to motorists driving without number plates to have them fitted to their vehicles immediately, as they will issue suspension notices to drivers found to contravene the law.
