Cellphone Traffic By-Law to commences today!

City Traffic Officers will embark on a cellphone impoundment blitz starting at 3pm today 5 July 2012! If you’re caught you can forget about! BB’ing, Whatsapping and Tweeting for a while!!!

City of Cape Town Traffic Officers will start enforcing the new Traffic By-Law – Sect 33(1) (a) r/w 39 PN 6892 of 2011 (code name BB careful).

The Traffic By-Law was promulgated on 22 July 2011 and makes provision for the confiscation of cellphones. It will be held for a period of 24 hours, after which a fine can be paid to have the cellphone returned. News of this By-Law has been making its rounds in South Africa media for the past few weeks.

Distracted drivers pose a grave danger to other road users. Using a cellphone whilst driving negatively affects the ability, awareness, field of vision and reaction time of drivers thereby increasing the potential for an accident.

Motorists are urged to utilise a hands free kit as required by the National Road Traffic Act or pull off to the side of the road when it is safe to do so and take the call. Unless of course you’re driving on the N2 opposite Khayelitsha or roads like Modderdam past Valhalla Park. That may make things a bit difficult.
