Taxis: Traffic police clamp down

2008-05-08 00:00

The Msunduzi Traffic Department’s newly formed taxi task unit has already collected more than R1 million in outstanding fines from taxi operators in the city.

"We identified complaints from the public, [including] motorists, commuters and pedestrians about the non-compliance of taxis. We engaged in an operation to monitor taxis that are driving towards oncoming traffic and driving on the yellow line during peak hours. We are also focusing on illegal metered taxis as well as bakkies transporting pupils to school," said Chetty. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
