Taxi enforcement operations net thousands of scofflaws

Taxi enforcement operations net thousands of scofflaws

Over a two-and-a half month period, there’ve been more than 3 000 arrests for warrants totaling R31 million and more than 919 vehicles impounded. Read more below:

The City of Cape Town’s Traffic Service has further ramped up its taxi operations.

Faced with an avalanche of complaints about the behaviour of public transport operators, taxi drivers in particular, the department has been tackling the issue on a number of fronts.

Aside from regular daily enforcement, Operation Reclaim has also been stepped up to track down warrant scofflaws, and a series of taxi blitz operations have been in play since 22 May 2019, which sees the Traffic Service – supported by the Law Enforcement and Metro Police Departments – focus on transgressions in hot spot areas, identified through the number of complaints received.

Between May and mid-July, officers have arrested 3 336 taxi drivers with 13 568 outstanding warrants between them, valued at just over R31 million.

In some of the latest incidents this week:
  • 18 July 2019: Officers conducting a warrant operation, stopped a minibus taxi on Jakes Gerwel Drive. They recognised the driver as a person who ran away from one of their vehicle checkpoints last year. On further investigation, they found that the 24-year-old man had 43 outstanding warrants to the value of R111 600. The suspect was arrested and taken to Parow SAPS. A fingerprint scan revealed he is also wanted for a reckless/negligent driving case in Woodstock. Two more taxi drivers were arrested later that evening – a 33-year-old suspect with 27 warrants (R82 050) and a 30-year-old driver with 20 outstanding warrants to the value of R46 500.

  • 16 July 2019: Officers arrested four taxi drivers during an operation on the N2, with a total of 100 outstanding warrants to the value of R184 000.
‘The numbers are absolutely staggering and I hope it helps bust the myth that there is no enforcement taking place. I also hope that it sends a stern message to those scofflaws who think they are above the law, that they could very well be next, and that it somehow makes them think twice about their behaviour, and their disdain for the law,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, Alderman JP Smith.

During the same period, 919 minibus taxis have been impounded – either because the driver did not have an operating license, or was contravening the conditions of their license.

On average, minibus taxis remain in the pound for four days, with the longest period of impoundment being 49 days.

The City of Cape Town’s impoundment release fee structure for vehicle impoundments is outlined below:

Number of impoundments No operating license (permit) Contrary to operating license
1st impoundment R7 000 R2 500
2nd Impoundment R10 000 R5 000
3rd Impoundment R15 000 R10 000

Since the launch of the taxi blitz, one minibus taxi has been impounded three times in the space of three-and-a-half weeks.

‘Based on our impoundment release fee structure, the driver or owner of this vehicle forked out a total of R32 000 to get the vehicle back. When next it gets impounded, he will be hit with another hefty impoundment release fee, but clearly, the money is not an issue. This is why we have continuously advocated for permanent impoundments.

‘To be clear, the impounding of a vehicle comes with a lot of administration and takes officers off the roads for the duration of the process. To have the vehicle back on the road within a matter of hours or days, with the driver continuing with their unlawful behaviour, is utter madness and completely defeats the purpose. The taxi industry is a crucial cog in the public transport wheel, but it needs to do better, both for its passengers, but also the safety of fellow road users. In the absence of that we need stronger laws to tackle this issue once and for all,’ added Alderman Smith.

City of Cape Town Intention To Incur Long-Term Debt

Apply for star rating certification for your business

10 September 2018
Apply for star rating certification for your business
Dear sir/madam

We have updated our Water Star Rating certification so that it now recognises integrated water management. Businesses are encouraged to apply for the new certification now.

The rating has been introduced to promote best practices in water management, savings and pollution control in the business sector, government departments, education and health institutions and residential estates.

How the certification works

Under the star rating system, businesses that receive one star are certified as compliant with the minimum requirements of relevant water legislation and the City’s Water By-law (2010) and Amendment (2018).

Those businesses that are awarded between two and five stars are certified for also implementing different degrees of additional measures to further reduce water consumption and limit water pollution.

Businesses who achieve five stars are certified as champion innovators that have found unique or extraordinary ways to conserve water and limit water pollution, thereby protecting the environment.

How businesses are assessed

The certification process includes an assessment that focuses on how water is managed. The voluntary assessment covers different aspects of water management, including:
  • how effluent is handled (e.g. is it discharged into the sewer system or taken away lawfully for re-use by another entity or for destruction)
  • how the water is used on site (e.g. for drinking, cooking, bathing/showering, operations or production related activities)
  • what measures are in place to reduce municipally-supplied drinking water demand
  • where the water comes from.
How points are scored

Businesses score points if they, for example;
  • have put in place measures to reduce municipally-supplied drinking water
  • know how much water is used per location (i.e. metering at point of use)
  • promote less of a dependency on the municipal supply by using rainwater/borehole/treated effluent/greywater
  • responsibly discharge effluent or have zero effluent discharge
  • undertake and can account for regular leak detection and repair, meter auditing and awareness programmes.
How to apply

You can apply by submitting your application online or by emailing it to

PARTNER SITES AND RESOURCES For your convenience, we have set up a Business Enquiry Service that will provide information on the City’s procedures and processes. If you need any assistance, please contact

Taxi enforcement statistics paint a grim picture

With an average of 269 vehicle impounds a month and nearly 45 000 fines issued in the first quarter of this year, it is evident that enforcement alone will not get minibus-taxi operators to toe the line. Read more below:

The City of Cape Town’s Traffic Service issued nearly 45 000 fines to taxi operators in just over three months since the beginning of 2018.

As of 9 April 2018, officers had issued 44 937 fines to taxi drivers across the metropole for a range of contraventions, including:

Moving violations 9 560
Unlicensed driver 8 695
Overloading 6 143
Not wearing a safety belt 4 211
Not displaying vehicle licence disc 1 948
Unlicensed motor vehicle 1 597

‘These fines exclude speeding offences, so it really does give one a sense of the level of lawlessness that happens on our roads on a daily basis. The statistics also debunk the perception that our enforcement agencies do not act against taxi operators. We have very limited resources that are stretched to capacity given the demands on them. Furthermore, this does not even represent the enforcement done against other road users, who are by no means innocent, so it certainly provides some perspective on what exactly we are up against,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith.

The Traffic Service has also impounded 2 426 public transport vehicles since July 2017 – an average of 269 a month. Of these, 71% of drivers did not have an operating licence and the rest were operating in contravention of their operating licences.

‘Impoundment is a massive logistical exercise for us as the vehicle has to be driven to the pound by a traffic officer and the necessary documentation completed, which is time consuming. When one considers that the vehicle reclaim rate among public transport operators is 98%, it does make impoundment seem like a revolving door as the vehicle is back on the street virtually the same day or the next. We need to hurt errant operators where it hurts and that is permanent impoundment, but currently the law does not allow for this and the City simply enforces the law, we do not make it. We have been working with the Provincial Government to expedite the conclusion of the new Provincial Traffic legislation that would allow for more effective enforcement strategies, including impoundment of vehicles for traffic offences committed by public transport vehicles rather than issuing fines which are often evaded,’ added Alderman Smith.

In spite of the enforcement efforts designed to create a safer city as outlined in the City’s Organisational Development and Transformation Plan, many motorists simply refuse to pay their outstanding fines. Currently, the top 100 public transport ‘warrant dodgers’ have amassed more than 2 800 outstanding warrants amounting to R3 339 360.

‘This is not surprising, but we are working hard to improve our warrant execution rates and holding motorists accountable for their actions. We have seen an increase in the number of people arrested and hopefully, in the medium- to longer term, we will start seeing this intervention having an impact on the behaviour of road users. In fact, we have already started seeing an increase in our traffic fine income, which is a sign that more people are paying their fines because they realise that there is a risk of being caught.

‘With this week’s national bus strike, many people will be reliant on the minibus-taxi industry to get to work and school. I call on operators to be mindful of their passengers’ safety, but also to have consideration for other road users. Nearly a third of the fines issued in the last quarter were for driver fitness. Taxi owners and associations need to reassess who they are allowing behind the wheel, considering the many lives those drivers have in their hands every day,’ said Alderman Smith.
