Cape Town – A man who drank almost two bottles of whisky passed out behind the steering wheel of his car in the middle of an intersection in Cape Town on Sunday night.

JP Smith, City of Cape Town mayoral committee member for safety and security, said the traffic department was conducting a blitz in the Table View area when they found the car in the middle of the intersection, Netwerk24 reported.

The sozzled man had brought traffic to a standstill at the intersection of Blaauwberg Road and Janssens Avenue.

He was found unconscious behind the steering wheel of his car. Police found an empty whisky bottle and another almost empty one on the passenger seat.

"Three traffic officials were needed to get him out of the car. The car blocked traffic and had to be moved out of the way," Smith said.

Another eight drivers were nabbed in Table View for drunk driving on Sunday evening, and 63 motorists were fined for driving without a licence, and taking part in illegal drag racing.
