CT motorists with outstanding traffic fines warned

The City of Cape Town is revving up efforts to track down drivers with outstanding traffic fines and warrants.

The City’s Traffic Service has had more operational resources to deployed under its Operation Reclaim.

The City’s JP Smith says only 32% to 36% of traffic fine payments are currently collected by the authorities.

Smith has denied claims that money collected from fines comes directly back to the Traffic Service.

We issue 130 000 to 180 000 fines a month.

JP Smith, Mayco member for Safety and Security - City of Cape Town

It's imperative that, along with additional traffic officers, we must bulk up the ability to execute those warrants when they don't pay.

JP Smith, Mayco member for Safety and Security - City of Cape Town

We don't do this because of the money.
