Western Cape Traffic Authorities have arrested one of the top ten most wanted traffic offenders.  The offender was arrested after he visited the Gallows Hill Traffic Department to renew his drivers licence. 

The man has 69 outstanding warrants which have now become double warrants as he failed to appear in court on specific dates he was given. 

Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security JP Smith said after he was arrested he was taken to court whereby bail of R10 000 was set, which he was unable to come up with the money.  He is now in Pollsmoor Prison awaiting his trial dates in June and middle of July.

Meanwhile JP Smith said Operation Reclaim has been increased which means that more traffic officials are on the road to catch offenders. 

Smith has urged motorists to pay up their fines before they get to warrants because the system will eventually catch up with them. 

Smith said in the last six months just about 8 000 people have been arrested for outstanding warrants relating to traffic offences.  33 warrants have in total been executed to the value of about R27 million.

“The traffic system has been sharpened up and the ability to deal with people who ignore traffic regulations, so that we can make sure that people are safe on the roads” Smith added.
