Johannesburg mayor Herman Mashaba will on Wednesday launch a Reckless Driving Hotline to allow members of the public to report reckless and inconsiderate road behaviour.
They will also be able to upload the footage onto the WhatsApp-based hotline where-after JMPD officers will follow up and take the necessary actions.
The launch of this pilot project is aimed to improve driver behaviour and to ensure that road safety is enhanced for all.
Public safety MMC Michael Sun explains…
“We are really excited about this new hotline. It’s the reckless driving hotline. And as much as we are excited, this hotline is based on a lot of the frustration and anger experienced by Joburg motorists on a daily basis. We see a lot of reports on social media posts on reckless driving and we thought we really need to clamp down on this.”
Exciting new City of Joburg Reckless Driving Hotline will be launched tomorrow at 9:00 by the Executive Mayor @HermanMashaba and I, pls give us a Like if you support this initiative. pic.twitter.com/ORGg4cy1Ib
