The City of Cape Town this morning took its first bite at Operation Restore – a week-long, city-wide initiative in response to ongoing complaints about reckless behaviour and disregard for the rules of the road in the public transport industry.
The City’s Traffic Service, supported by Metro Police, Law Enforcement, and the South African Police Service (SAPS) launched the operation along the N2 between the R300 and M5. Officers arrested three suspects for outstanding warrants, served 29 warrants, and released three suspects on a warning. They also issued 42 fines for illegal use of the bus and minibus-taxi (BMT) lane and 1 062 fines for various other offences.
