OVER 800 ARRESTED IN JOBURG OVER DRUNK DRIVING

OVER 800 ARRESTED IN JOBURG OVER DRUNK DRIVING

The Johannesburg Metro Police Department says over 800 people were arrested in the city last month for driving under the influence.

Eleven people have died on Joburg’s roads since the start of the holiday road safety campaign two weeks ago.

Drivers hitting the bottle before getting behind the wheel remain a major headache for law enforcement over the festive season.

For many South Africans – this time of the year means slowing down and getting some well-deserved rest but this isn’t the case for law enforcement officers.

The festive season sees them out in full force, but there is one battle that the JMPD is still struggling to win, and that’s drunk driving.

While road users are ignoring the rules, the situation within the JMPD itself seems to be improving.

Only 10 disciplinary cases were reported last month, a 50-percent reduction from October.

eNCA reporter Janke Tolmay spoke to JMPD Chief David Tembe and Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba.
