Cape's Ghost Squad taking action against impatient drivers

CapeTalk listeners have asked that something be done about inconsiderate motorists who are cutting in line where Marine Drive leads onto the N1.

The Breakfast with Kieno Kammies team followed up on the story and on Friday morning the Cape Town's Ghost squad was sent out to deal with the problem.

Maxine Jordaan, principal inspector for Traffic Operations says they recorded about 30 offences in less than an hour of people driving on painted islands and forcing their way through traffic.

About 30 motorists received fines this morning at the N1 split.

Jordaan says every motorist should keep in mind that any vehicle driving next to you could be a Ghost Squad's unmarked vehicle.

The core function of the Ghost Squad is to create that omnipresence that we are everywhere at all times.
