According to reports Gauteng Infrastructure Development MEC, Bheki Nkosi’s, official vehicle has run up R15 750 worth of speeding fines.
A summons has also been issued after the vehicle was allegedly caught travelling 152 km/h in a 100 km/h zone.
Gauteng Transport MEC, Ismail Vadi’s, official vehicle has had nine fines in the last year totalling more than R12 000.
Gauteng official vehicles often exceed the speed limit using their blue lights. Last year the official vehicle of Gauteng Local Government and Housing MEC, Humprey
Mmemezi, knocked down high school student Thomas Ferreira.
MECs should be held personally responsible if their official vehicles break the law and endanger the lives of innocent motorists.
The DA is asking questions in the Gauteng Legislature regarding traffic fines and who is liable to pay them.
