Cape Town metro police on Sunday said they were winning the war on alcohol abuse. During routine operations this past weekend, only nine motorists were arrested for drunk driving.
Patrols on city beaches have already taken effect with officers issuing 13 by law contraventions.
Metro police spokesperson Nowellen Petersen said they do not take drunk driving lightly.
“The metro police had a few roadblocks over the metropole this past weekend. It was obvious that there was a reduction in drunk driving compared to other weekends,” he said.
