Metro Police festive season roadblocks campaign was a resounding success
​Metro Police’s festive season roadblocks led to the
arrest of 352 Road Traffi c Law transgressors.
​ETHEKWINI Metro Police’s no-nonsense approach to hindering drinking and driving on City roads proved successful as citywide roadblocks during the festive season led to the arrest of 352 transgressors.  The roadblocks began in November 2016 and continued throughout the festive season.

Metro Police Deputy Head of Operations, Steve Middleton said the roadblocks were held in different parts of the City and were conducted by officers from six districts, with the Special Enforcement Unit carrying out the most arrests.

The central district had the second highest number with 80 arrests of unlawful motorists. “We also arrested 15 people in the south, 84 in the north, 37 in the inner west, and 30 in the outer west,” he said. In order to ensure the safety of all visitors and residents, Middleton said more officers had been deployed during the festive season in all areas where heavy traffic and contraventions were expected.

Middleton warned motorists to continue adhering to the rules of the road as the City has a zero tolerance approach to drinking and driving on the roads throughout the year.
