ALSO: Motorists warned to settle outstanding traffic summonses or face arrest

Reacting to the latest arrests, Transport Regulation General Manager in the department, Sibandiso Nkuna is pleading with motorists and vehicle owners not to wait for traffic fines to be converted into warrants of arrest but to rather resolve summonses while there’s time.

“It is not the intention of the department to bring misery to people with these arrests. All we want to do is to encourage motorists and vehicle owners to come foward and pay the outstanding traffic fines. We also believe that this will have on government to get motorists to obey the rules,” says Nkuna.
