Nailed: MEC names and shames drunk drivers

2011-05-26 00:00

MEC for Transport, Community Safety and Liaison Willies Mchunu is holding true to his promise to name and shame drivers who drive drunk and are still failing to comply with the Road Traffic Act, launched in February this year.

Mchunu said it is clear that the violation of traffic laws is still not taken seriously.

“For instance, people worry more about getting caught speeding or drinking and driving, rather than the other more fatal consequences of committing these crimes. We are encouraged by the support we receive through public-private partnerships that help improve our people’s quality of life …” said Mchunu.

South African Breweries (SAB), producers of alcoholic beverages, have been big supporters of this initiative. According to the department, SAB has for the past two years been proactive about collaborating with the department in bringing these road offenders to book. — WR.
