Traffic Services in the City of Cape Town says it has noticed a steady increase in motorists driving without a number plate.
Traffic officers on patrol have recorded more than four thousand- 500 vehicles not displaying number plates from July to September this year.
The City's JP Smith says often this
is a ploy to avoid detection for speeding, or when motorists are trying to dodge being caught for outstanding warrants of arrests.
He has warned that driving without number plates is a traffic violation of the National Road Traffic Act for which your vehicle will be suspended.
A vehicle with only one number plate is also deemed not roadworthy.
Smith says traffic officers will issue a fine and issue a suspension notice so that the vehicle can undergo a roadworthy test within 14 working days.
