60 held for drunk driving in Johannesburg

Johannesburg - As part of commemorating women's month, female police officers arrested 60 drunk drivers during roadblocks around Johannesburg, metro police said on Saturday.

The roadblocks were held by 94 female metro police officers on Friday night, Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said.

The roadblocks were held along Chris Hani road in Soweto, Bree and Mooi streets in the CBD, Jan Smuts drive and Seventh avenue in Parktown, as well as the M1 and Corlett drive offramp.

"The drunk drivers were given bail ranging from R1 000 to R1 500," said Minnaar.

They were expected to appear at different courts around Johannesburg next week.

How many Zuma's drove away without being breathalyzed? Being 'nabbed' depends on who you know and the car you drive!

What has been done to provide safe, affordable and reliable transport 24/7? I can answer nothing! Spend taxes to improve infrastructure once that is done nail people for driving drunk.

How weird! This is totally ridiculous. I don't get how woman's month has anything to do with arresting drunk drivers.
