Durban metro police collected R308 630 in outstanding traffic fines during road blocks at the weekend, police said today.
“More than R308 630 worth of outstanding traffic fines was collected from various roadblocks that were held over the weekend,” said Durban metro police spokesman Eugene Msomi.
The road blocks were aimed at dealing with motorists who did not take advantage of the 50 percent discount period which ended at the end of last month, he said.
“More than 285 vehicles were stopped at various locations within the municipality and 75 motorists were arrested,” he said.
Msomi said one motorist had to pay R31 000 in outstanding traffic fines.
“The enforcement on outstanding fines is ongoing and metro police will continue to ensure that motorists comply with the law.”
