Bloemfontein: More than 100 motorists were arrested this past weekend for disobeying the rules of the road in Bloemfontein.

“Between the 11th and the 13th of October 2019, more than 74 motorists were arrested for drunken driving, 22 drivers were arrested for excessive speed and 36 vehicles were discontinued. Of the speedsters, one motorist clocked 206km on a 120km zone. Such reckless driving must never be tolerated,” Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula said in a statement on Sunday.

The Minister led a successful Road Safety Campaign during the festivities at the Mangaung African Cultural Festival (Macufe), in Bloemfontein.

The initiative included a road safety education and awareness activation as well as traffic law enforcement operations (by the National Traffic Police and the Free State Provincial Traffic Police Department). –
