Traffic officials take action against unruly taxis

After listening in on CapeTalk's Breakfast show Director of Law Enforcement, Robbie Roberts, decided to take action regarding the lawlessness that takes place on the roads around Bayside Centre in Table View.

Working in collaboration with other law enforcement officers, a three day operation looking into driver fitness, moving violations, vehicle fitness and outstanding warrants was implemented.

As a result, 58 taxi drivers were arrested for contravening the national land and transport act, a total of 132 warrants were issued, 762 fines amounting to over R500 000 were issued and a total of 30 taxis were impounded.
