Johannesburg cracks down on road offenders, criminals for festive season

Tshwaku says crime prevention units will be deployed at various hotspots and that drivers should ensure their vehicles are in roadworthy condition.

“We are going to be focusing on three layers – number one is traffic safety management and enforcement, number two is the by-law enforcement, number three is the crime combating and prevention. On the traffic management and enforcement – if you are going to drink do not drive, because you are going to be arrested. There are roadblocks, which are being set up all over the city – so be careful because you going to sleep in jail. Also people are going to be travelling away, they must ensure that their papers are proper.”
