Bonginkosi Madikizela, Western Cape MEC for transport, says the province will return to blood testing to test drunk driver while the province haunts to fight Covid-19.
“Drunk drivers need to know if they are convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol, they can face up to six years in prison and face a fine of up to R120,000,” says Madikizela.
The MEC says in addition to the penalties issued by our courts, those convicted will have a history of crime that will affect them for the rest of their lives.
“Their driver’s license can be suspended and it can negatively affect their work. Drinking and driving is not worth it. ”
Madikizela says during the Easter holidays that are around the corner, traffic officers will arrest drunk drivers.
“Our officers will not be lenient. If you plan on drinking, make a plan B before getting into a car. ” Madikizela said in the statement
