Western Cape Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security JP Smith received a complaint on Wednesday about a metro police vehicle that had been clamped by a private property owner for parking on a red line.

It is alleged that the metro police parked his car outside Parow shopping centre to issue a motorist with a ticket, when his car was clamped. 

Smith said it is obviously a bad example to set to the rest of the public as Metro police officers.

Smith adds that Metro police traffic and law enforcement officials and services should up hold the laws and traffic regulations and the City’s by laws.

Smith said he requested that the City’s internal affairs to find out who the officers were and responsible for parking the vehicle there and make sure that the City takes the necessary action.
