Cape Town is considering introducing a 24-hour traffic service to reduce road carnage and to clamp down on lawlessness.
Councillor JP Smith says the City has started to get the ball rolling to expand the traffic service, which has always been during the day, to night time.
He says this is a commitment made by the newly elected mayor, Dan Plato during his opening speech.
We have started having meetings with him and we have already started expanding the training college so that we can fast-track the training of additional staff to make these services fully fletched 24 hours as opposed to the skeleton crew that we have.— JP Smith, Councillor
We do believe you get better results in that way and that's the reason Cape Town is one of the cities that is stabilised and have reduced road fatalities.— JP Smith, Councillor
