CAPE TOWN - Eleven people have been taken into custody as part of an operation targeting motorists with outstanding warrants of arrest.

Traffic services officials rolled out Operation Reclaim at the intersection of Jakes Gerwel Drive and Oliver Tambo Drive on Tuesday morning.

The City of Cape Town’s JP Smith said: “Operation Reclaim is responsible for an average 95% of the warrants served and arrests executed. The automated number plate recognition unit has played a huge role in this success. They have five vehicles fitted with cameras that are able to scan number plates and identify vehicles with outstanding warrants of arrest.”
