The Ghost Squad

A spe­cial­ist unit of South Africa’s traf­fic ser­vices, known as the Ghost Squad, is tasked with mak­ing our roads safer by ap­pre­hend­ing il­le­gal driv­ers, speed­sters and other driv­ers pos­ing a threat to road safety. They’ve been op­er­at­ing in un­marked ve­hi­cles

WOW (Women on Wheels) - - WOW -

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

Keep in mind that any of these un­marked ve­hi­cles could be round you on the road, so it’s never worth break­ing the speed limit or driv­ing reck­lessly. They’re there to keep us safe.

These ve­hi­cles are fit­ted with cam­eras that care­fully scan num­ber plates to de­ter­mine whether a ve­hi­cle is listed as hav­ing out­stand­ing fines, war­rants, or if there’s any il­le­gal con­cern.

Al­though the Ghost Squad’s ve­hi­cles are un­marked, the of­fi­cers in them are dressed in uni­form and have a con­sid­er­able amount of ex­pe­ri­ence.

If a mem­ber of the Ghost Squad pulls you over, you need to com­ply as you would with any reg­u­lar metro po­lice of­fi­cer.
