Brackenfell taxi driver arrested for 133 outstanding warrants
arrest

A taxi driver whose vehicle was impounded in Brackenfell two weeks ago, was arrested at the Nadabeni pound yesterday.

Officers snagged the 35-year-old driver, when he showed up at the pound to reclaim his car, according to Mayco member for safety and security JP Smith.

He has 133 warrants amounting to R188650 against him earning him a place on the City’s top 100 outstanding warrants list.

Smith commended the officers for this arrest, saying it was significant in the ongoing battle for safer roads.

“I hope the courts throw the book at this driver. It is the only way that we’ll get a handle on the reckless behaviour on our roads and disregard for the law.

“Let these also serve as a warning to the taxi industry. We are ramping up our operations in response to the  many complaints from the public. Apart from outstanding warrants, we will also be focusing on operation licences, overloading and driving offences,” Smith said.
