There was a tense standoff between traffic officials and taxi drivers in Mfuleni on Thursday and police rushed to the scene to monitor the situation.
It is alleged a taxi smashed into a traffic official’s vehicle as they were patrolling the area.
When stopped by officials the driver got out of the taxi and ran - apparently because he did not have a valid driver’s license.
Police impounded the taxi.
