Gauteng Traffic Police has arrested over twenty-five speedsters over a period of two weeks
The Gauteng Traffic Police High Speed unit has arrested over twenty-five speedsters on major routes in the past two weeks despite incessant calls from the Department for motorists to adhere to the traffic rules. The drivers were found driving negligently and recklessly, exceeding the speed limit of 120 km/h on a freeway.
“Excessive speeding is one of the contributory factors to road crashes leading to fatalities. Driver behavior and attitude on our roads is a major concern to law enforcement authorities which therefore calls for the strengthening of road safety education. Many of these arrested speedsters were found to be driving under the influence of alcohol which pose a danger to the lives of road users,” said Sello Maremane, Gauteng Traffic Police Spokesperson.
“Gauteng Traffic Police High Speed Unit will intensify the patrol of freeways, streets and public places in clearly marked vehicles as an available means for the prevention of road traffic violations,” added Sello Maremane.
