Cape Town enforcement agencies have arrested 167 suspects, including 132 drunk drivers, over the long weekend.

Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, JP Smith, says the arrests also include suspects caught with drugs, stolen property and illegal Firearms,


one of which was an imitation gun.

Smith says they are concerned about motorists who continue to drive while under the influence.

"Metro Police and Traffic officers arrested 132 drunk drivers between them over the weekend.

The continued disregard for law and order is staggering, but frankly, not unsurprising.

While convictions are not the City's responsibility, we will attempt, going forward, to try and cast a spotlight on the conviction rate, because the manner in which some motorists behave, suggests they believe there


are no consequences for their actions."
