Metro po­lice is­sue fines in Uiten­hage

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - NEWS -

AN early-morn­ing spe­cial op­er­a­tion by Nel­son Man­dela Bay’s metro po­lice force saw fines worth R21 000 is­sued in Uiten­hage’s KwaNobuhle yes­ter­day.

The fines, is­sued over a two-hour pe­riod, were for over­loaded ve­hi­cles, un­law­ful scholar trans­port and un­road­wor­thy ve­hi­cles.

The mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s po­lit­i­cal head of safety and se­cu­rity, councillor John Best, said: “The spe­cial op­er­a­tion is a con­tin­u­a­tion of our sus­tained ef­forts to rid our roads of law­less­ness and traf­fic law vi­o­la­tions.

“Our ghost squad is also op­er­at­ing in 24-hour shifts, which means law en­force­ment on our roads takes place on a con­tin­u­ous ba­sis that should ul­ti­mately be for the ben­e­fit of all law-abid­ing cit­i­zens.”

He said he was con­fi­dent their hard work would bear fruit. – Week­end Post re­porter
