Time has run out for speedsters as well as drunk and reckless drivers. Motorists are being brought to task by project “Woza Retest” courtesy of The Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC).
Those receiving notices include radio presenter Gareth Cliff, caught doing 182km/h on the highway and a social worker nabbed for doing 224km/h this weekend.
The project launched last month aims to educate negligent motorists with around 200 errant motorists receiving notices. They will have just 2 weeks to explain why they broke the law or risk losing their licences. They will then have to be retested for both their learners and drivers licences.
Ashref Ismail from RTMC told reporters that a committee will adjudicate the representation and a finding will be made. If the committee finds the excuse is not valid, the driver will have to be retested for the learners and drivers licence.
Ismail continued, saying that the cost of the first retest will be at the expense of the RTMC and any subsequent test thereafter will be for the account of the driver.
