Cape Town Traffic officials were attacked twice in Brackenfell

Cape Town Traffic officials were attacked in Brackenfell last week, whilst conducting an operation to check permits. The perpetrators then followed the officers to the Driving License Testing Centre where they were attacked once more

One of the officers was bitten by a dog.

The City’s Mayco Member for Safety and Security, JP Smith, alleges the attack was designed to deter action against illegal taxi operators.

‘’The attack on our traffic officers was completely unacceptable, but not entirely surprising. Over the years we have seen a very violent response from illegal taxi operators who think that they are untouchable and can deter enforcement through intimidation.’’

‘’This type of behaviour cannot be tolerated, nor will it succeed in deterring our efforts to maintain law and order on the roads, and protect the public,’’ Smith added.
