ETHEKWINI’S intensive law enforcement operations over the long Easter weekend has ensured that thousands of traffic offenders are brought to book for failing to adhere to road rules.

On 19 April, Deputy Mayor Fawzia Peer applauded all security and emergency services for working together in prioritising the safety of residents and visitors during the busy period. The report back comes after Mayor Zandile Gumede launched an Easter Road Safety Campaign on 11 April where she issued a stern warning to motorists to obey road rules or face full wrath of the law.

From 13 to 17 April, a total of 15 roadblocks held by Metro Police in different parts of eThekwini resulted in 266 drunk driving arrests. Also during this period, the City recorded 15 583 speed timing infringements. Furthermore, other infringements which include drinking in public, unlicensed vehicles and driving without a licence totalled 5 045. In addition to the 15 roadblocks, Metro Police also set up 37 vehicle check points.​

Deputy Mayor Peer said roadblocks were held to reduce traffic accidents, injuries on the road and the number of deaths on the road. “There was zero tolerance for motorists who failed to abide by the rules of the road,” she added.
