ANY­ONE at­tempt­ing to drive or park in the Walk The Talk-re­stricted area dur­ing the time of the event on Sun­day will have their ve­hi­cle towed away and will have to pay a R2 600 fine to have it re­leased.

This was a stern warn­ing from Joburg metro po­lice spokesper­son Edna Ma­monyane who con­firmed that all the routes where the 702 Walk the Talk takes place will be closed off.

She said the ve­hi­cles would not be al­lowed on the routes for the safety of the par­tic­i­pants. “Those not tak­ing part in the walk must try and avoid the Em­mar­en­tia area,” she said.

“The routes will be closed early… as people will get to the start­ing point about 6am,” added Ma­monyane.

She stressed that po­lice of­fi­cers would be en­sur­ing that the safety and rules of the walk were be­ing fol­lowed and obeyed by all mo­torists.

All driv­ers were cau­tioned from at­tempt­ing to break any of the rules be­cause they would face a heavy fine.
