Western Cape traffic authorities are investigating an incident on Sunday morning in which provincial traffic officers in Grabouw closed the N2 highway to allow drivers to spin their cars.

Spokesperson for the provincial Transport ministry, Byron la Hoe says the incident was unfortunate and those involved will be given an opportunity to explain themselves before action is taken against them.

He says motorists travelling on the freeway were inconvenienced. Provincial Traffic Chief, Kenny Africa says this type of behaviour is totally unacceptable. Africa says there will be serious consequences for those found guilty of misconduct.
