Over Easter weekend the SAPS (South African Police Service), SANDF (South African National Defence Force), Provisional Traffic Department and the local Municipal Traffic Department all came together for a seven-day roadblock.
From Thursday, 18 April to Wednesday 24 April, authorities set up a roadblock on the N2 en route to Ermelo, creating a safer road for thousands of holidaymakers. With hard work the involved parties managed to keep intoxicated – and reckless drivers off the road and made seven arrests for dagga found in vehicles.
Cars were inspected for roadworthiness, licences and number plates were scanned to check for outstanding traffic offences. With (the correct) warrants the Provincial Traffic Department’s officials on scene made multiple arrests for outstanding fines that were not paid on the spot.
It was truly a job well done by all parties involved. Thank you for making an effort to keep all road users within the Mkhondo area safer!
