Johannesburg - Six vehicle examiners were arrested in Boksburg on Thursday on several counts of corruption, Gauteng police said.

Captain Paul Ramaloko said the group, aged between 24 and 42, were allegedly issuing roadworthy certificates for vehicles they had not tested.

"They appeared in the Johannesburg Specialised Crimes Court and were released on bail of R2 000 each."

The case would continue on February 26.

This was the second group of vehicle examiners to be arrested in Gauteng this week. Three others were nabbed on the same charges at the Viking testing station in Devland, Johannesburg, on Wednesday.

"They appeared in court yesterday [Wednesday] and were released on R3 000 bail [each]," he said.

More arrests were expected.

      So much about the road uses causing the carnage on the roads and not the unroadworthyness of the vehicles

    People think corruption is acceptable - follow the leaders. And there is another reason for the high accident and death rate in SA Again - enforce laws already in place, and many of our problems will already see an improvement!!!

    How funny that people are still surprised about things like this happening in the NEW South-Africa.......Corruption is rife with the kind of example this government shows everybody and no hope of things changing .....

    So now our trust in any system just continues to be eroded. Unless the punishment is harsh, this will just carry on. No wonder law abiding people become discouraged.

    This is indicative of poor leadership and strategic direction of the RTMC

    It may be a small drop in the ocean, but it's a small drop in the ocean. Is not at least a little praise due here? With the labour laws so in favour of the employee, I can only imagine how difficult it must have been to nail these scumbags
