Over 6 000 unroadworthy public transport and freight vehicles were scrapped from service in October, the Road Traffic Management Corporation said today.

More than 1 800 of these were from Mpumalanga, spokesperson Ashref Ismail said in a statement.

The vehicles included buses, minibuses and trucks. More than 46 000 fines were issued to public transport and freight drivers during the same month, said Ismail.

A total of 1 460 motorists were arrested, 196 of them for drunk driving.

This was part of pre-December holiday operations, Ismail said.
