In the  light of the recent unacceptable high number of drunk driving arrests on our roads, the City of Cape Town Metro Police Department will be embarking on a strict approach against drunk drivers as we are gearing towards New Year celebrations.

According to Metro Police spokesperson, Nowellen Petersen, motorists can expect an increase in roadblocks and visibility patrols during this period leading up to News Years celebrations.

 Peterson adds that they would like to warn motorists to refrain from driving under the influence of alcohol as they will be adopting a strict approach in their efforts to combat drunk driving on the roads.

Petersen said drunk drivers will not compromise the safety of law abiding road users and therefore the City appeals to all motorists to obey the rules of the road.

Metro Police also warned bathers not to consume alcohol on beaches and picnic areas after large quantities of liquor confiscations have already been reported since the beginning of the festive season.

Peterson added that members have been deployed on all the city’s main beaches and picnic areas and the city will not hesitate to act where liquor is found in the possession of bathers.
