Limpopo Public Transport Unit officers attached to Limpopo Traffic Police, stopped a 22-seater cross-border taxi with double the amount of passengers on board.
According to the spokesperson for the Department of Transport, Matome Moremi-Taueutsoala, the bus was stopped on the N1 next to Snake Park just outside Polokwane. The bus was enroute to Zimbabwe from Johannesburg.
“We have called cross border officials to authenticate cross border papers but the driver doesn’t have a permit to drive this kind of vehicle,”he said.
There were 44 people on board, seven of them children.
Moremi-Taueutsoala says this is totally unacceptable and that traffic officers will continue to crack down on those who break the law.
