Over the past weekend Western Cape traffic authorities arrested 42 motorists for drunken driving at roadblocks in Gordon’s Bay, Muizenberg and Kraaifontein.

Meanwhile a 52-year-old motorcyclists was arrested last week in the Bellville/Stikland area on several charges including being over the legal blood-alcohol limit and resisting arrest.

Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security JP Smith says after a fifteen minute chasing collided with one of the traffic vehicles and came to a stop.

Smith said he was found to be twice over the limit of blood alcohol limit and was arrested for drunk driving, recklessness and negligent driving defeating the ends of justice, failing to stop and resisting arrest and malicious damage to property.

He added that it also emerged that the suspect from Bellville is an unlicensed driver. During operations focusing on the illegal drag racing in Eerste River and Bellville South, officers arrested two motorists one for reckless and negligent driving and another one for drunk driving.

“The drunk driver was found with a glass in his hand that he claimed is a cool drink but we soon established it was alcohol. When testing him it was found that he was three times over the limit” Smith added.
