Gauteng Road Hogs - Staight to Jail!

Minnaar said that JMPD’s acting chief David Tembe cracked the whip recently after charging that motorists were “perpetually breaking the rules” and that paying traffic fines was not changing attitudes.

NVDL: I must say I have experienced frankly the most appalling and stupid driving in Johannesburg. People swerve and dive ahead of you just to get ahead of you at the next traffic light. I've also seen a lot of drivers simply going through red traffic lights.

Among the road offences which would result in immediate arrest are skipping red traffic lights, using an emergency lane, driving facing oncoming traffic, passing on shoulder lanes, overtaking on a solid line and disregarding pedestrians.

Driving beyond the speed limit by more than 40km/h and drunken driving are also included.
