Western Cape Traffic officers close down on school buses

The Western Cape Provincial Traffic has increased law enforcement operation.

This is an attempt to prevent a repeat of the tragic accident in Blackheath which left ten young learners dead while they were being transported to school.

This week traffic officers have pulled over a total of 135 school buses including minibus taxis, which are used to transporting students to and from school.

These operations were carried out across the Western Cape. The operations resulted in seven buses being taken off the road for being unroadworthy. A further seven buses were in the hands of unlicensed drivers.

The traffic department has said just like they took a stand against drunk drivers through their Safely Home campaign, they will also stand against non-compliant operators and drivers who are tasked with transporting learners to and from school.
