10,000 cellphones confiscated from CT motorists
The City of Cape Town has warned motorists against using their cellphones while driving.
CAPE TOWN - The City of Cape Town says it's confiscated nearly 10,000 cellphones from motorists who were caught talking on their mobile phones while driving, over the past three years.
The municipality says this is in accordance with its traffic by-law that came into effect in July 2012.
In terms of the by-law, motorists are not allowed to drive on a public road while holding a communication device.
Spokesperson JP Smith has appealed to the public to be vigilant on the road.
"Remember that the accident you cause whilst you are distracted by your phone is irremediable. Please help us make our roads safe."
