Overloaded trucks weigh heavily on road safetyA truck was found to be overloaded by at least 25 000 kilograms<span>​​​​​<p>In one of the latest incidents on Saturday 12 January 2019, a truck was found to be overloaded by at least 25 000 kilograms.</p><p>An officer attached to the Road Haulage Unit stopped the container truck in Paarden Eiland after noticing that it appeared to be heavily overloaded. The driver was instructed to make his way to the N7 weighbridge for testing.</p><p>En route to the weighbride, two tyres burst but the officer insisted that the vehicle owner repair the tyres so they could proceed to the weighbridge. </p><p>When the truck was eventually weighed, it was found to be at least 25 tons over the permissible mass. The incident resulted in the issuing of 11 fines for various transgressions, totaling R42 000.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/overloaded%20truck.jpg" alt="" style="width:1069px;" /> </figure>​​</span><p>‘Our staff are reporting more of these incidents and so we’d like to remind companies to ensure that they are sticking to the prescribed regulations, not only because it is the law but also because overloaded vehicles are a danger to other road users. </p><p>‘We have seen numerous incidents in Cape Town over the years where heavy vehicles have overturned or become stuck, often with tragic consequences for the truck drivers or other road users who happen to be in the vicinity at the time. The city has also been left gridlocked on more than one occasion as a result of such incidents,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, Alderman JP Smith.</p><p>In the last six and a half months, the Road Haulage Unit has stopped 5 509 heavy motor vehicles. Of these, 1 054 were weighed and 321 (30%) were found to be overloaded. Officers have issued fines for overloaded vehicles amounting to R1 064 650.</p><p>‘The City appeals to fleet managers and truck owners to ensure that they abide by legislative requirements and that their drivers are properly trained. The enforcement statistics, along with the number of trucks that continue to get stuck under the Muizenberg bridge, show that there are problems that need addressing now and not when tragedy strikes.</p><p>‘Our Road Haulage Unit will continue its enforcement efforts to try and ensure compliance within the trucking industry. In the event of future incidents like breakdowns or accidents, our Fire and Rescue Service has acquired a special vehicle to fast-track the removal of heavy vehicles where they are blocking our major routes, but ultimately the trucking industry needs to get on track too and stay in the right lane,’ added Alderman Smith.</p><p><strong>End</strong><br></p>2019-01-14T22:00:00Z1
Monday boozy blues lands four taxi drivers behind barsThe City of Cape Town’s Drink Driving Awareness/Random Breathalyser Testing Unit arrested four taxi drivers early this morning during a roadblock on the Borchard’s Quarry link onto the N2.<p>‘This is sadly not unusual, as we have had a number of incidents where taxi drivers have been caught well over the legal blood-alcohol limit during the morning peak. What it speaks to is a lack of regard for the safety of paying customers, without whom the driver would have no income. Odds are that these drivers were drinking until late and then got up for work after a few hours’ sleep. It’s important to realise that alcohol remains in the bloodstream for far longer than most people realise and there is a very good chance that you are still legally drunk the morning after and not fit to be behind the wheel,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, Alderman JP Smith.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Image1.jpg" alt="" style="width:892px;" /></figure> <p>The arrest of the four suspects brings the number of motorists arrested by the Cape Town Traffic Service to 65 in the last week for drunk driving, outstanding warrants and reckless and negligent driving. Nearly a third of all arrests happened during an illegal street racing operation in the Athlone/Mitchells Plain area on Saturday 12 January 2019.</p><p>The operation resulted in 19 arrests – six for driving under the influence, one for furnishing false information and 12 for reckless and negligent driving. Officers also issued 649 fines for various offences. </p><p>‘We receive ongoing complaints from the public about illegal street racing. Athlone and Mitchells Plain are two of the many hot spots around the metropole and it is a massive undertaking to try and clamp down on this dangerous pastime. One of the drivers arrested during the operation was four times over the legal limit. This, combined with the need for speed that fuels these gatherings, is a recipe for disaster as we have seen so many times before, but still there is very little change in behaviour,’ said Alderman Smith.</p><p>In Hanover Park, the City’s Metro Police Gang and Drug Task Team (GDTT) confiscated two firearms in the space of 24 hours this weekend.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Image2.jpg" alt="" style="width:943px;" /></figure> <p>On Saturday, officers responded to information about an impending gang battle and arrested a 29-year-old suspect for possession of a .32 revolver and six rounds of ammunition. The following day, they arrested a 36-year-old woman for possession of a Z88 pistol and 11 rounds of ammunition (pictured) following a shooting incident. </p><p>Two more suspects (a 28-year-old male and a 36-year-old female) were arrested in Hanover Park for possession of drugs following a tip-off. Officers recovered 86 mandrax tablets, two mandrax halves and 93 packets of tik (pictured).</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/DrugsImage4.jpg" alt="" style="width:1000px;" /></figure> <p>‘All of the successes in Hanover Park were the result of intelligence-driven policing and tip-offs. It is a timely reminder to the public that they can do something about crime in their areas by being vigilant and reporting anything suspicious to the City’s enforcement services or the SAPS,’ added Alderman Smith.</p><p>In Bonteheuwel on Friday 7 January 2019, the GDTT executed six search warrants and arrested three suspects aged 39, 34 and 27 on drug related charges. Confiscated items included: </p><ul><li>9 packets of tik </li><li>44 dagga stoppe</li><li> 21 whole mandrax tablets</li><li>6 mandrax halves</li><li>R612,80 in cash</li></ul> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/DrugsImage3.jpg" alt="" style="width:1085px;" /></figure><p>Elsewhere, Metro Police officers arrested nine suspects for possession of drugs, drunk driving and robbery. One of the arrests came in Woodstock on Tuesday 8 January 2018, when officers on patrol noticed a civilian chasing another person. They joined in and caught the person being pursued. It emerged that he was suspected of stealing the cellphone of the person who had been chasing him. The 26-year-old was arrested on a charge of robbery and detained at Woodstock SAPS. </p><p> <strong>Note to broadcasters: </strong>audio clips are available for download<br><strong>For English</strong>: <a href="https://soundcloud.com/ct-media/140119-smith-wops" target="_blank">https://soundcloud.com/ct-media/140119-smith-wops</a><br><strong>For Afrikaans</strong>: <a href="https://soundcloud.com/ct-media/140119-afr-smith-wops" target="_blank">https://soundcloud.com/ct-media/140119-afr-smith-wops</a></p>2019-01-13T22:00:00Z1

Cape Town keeps its average consumption for previous month under 600 million litres The City of Cape Town is encouraged by water usage over the past month and the continued wise use of water.<p>Although dam levels have been declining somewhat as expected, due to the hot and windy weather of summer, water consumption over the past month has remained on the conservative side, which is helping Cape Town through the drought recovery period by reducing the impact on the dams. </p><p>The average water usage, which has remained under 600 million litres of collective usage per day for the period (the Level 3 restrictions stipulate collective usage of 650 million litres per day), is likely due to the water-wise behavioural shifts which occurred during the drought crisis period; and to the closure of some businesses and industry over the festive season. This reduction has balanced the water usage associated with the arrival of visitors to Cape Town. The City also engaged with some hospitality industry partners prior to the peak season to encourage them to continue water-wise messages in their establishments.</p><p>‘Restrictions remain on a fairly strict drought recovery level as a precaution to deal with rainfall uncertainty in 2019 and 2020.</p><p>‘We encourage Cape Town’s water ambassadors to maintain their water-wise approach during the drought recovery phase and as the metro moves towards becoming a more water-sensitive city in the near future. We see 2019 as a recovery year after having successfully emerged from the severe and unprecedented drought. Based on our own assessment, we will continue to follow a conservative approach in light of the rainfall uncertainty over the coming two years. This is not only a period of recovery for our dams, but also for our economy as a whole as well as for our residents and businesses who truly made huge sacrifices to help us get Cape Town through the drought,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Water and Waste Services, Councillor Xanthea Limberg. </p><p>Overview of dam levels and consumption:</p><h4>14 January 2019</h4><p>The levels of the dams which supply Cape Town declined by 1,1% over the past week to 63,1% of storage capacity. This is compared to dam levels of 28,8% at the same time last year.</p><p>The average water consumption increased by 25 million litres per day to 595 million litres per day for the past week, which is well within the Level 3 usage range of 650 million litres of collective usage per day. This increase is likely due to many formal residential households returning to Cape Town after the festive season as well as the start of the new school year.</p> <img src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Dam%20levels%2014%20Jan%202019.jpg" alt="" style="margin:0px;width:843px;height:198px;" /> <h4>7 January 2019</h4> <img src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Dam%20Levels%207%20Jan%202019.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px 15px;width:821px;height:193px;" /> <h4>31 December 2018<br></h4> <img src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Dam%20levels%2031%20Dec%202018.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px 10px;width:836px;height:196px;" /> <h4>24 December 2018</h4> <img src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Dam%20levels%2024%20Dec%202018.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px 10px;width:830px;height:194px;" /> <h4>17 December 2018 </h4> <img src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Dam%20levels%2017%20Dec%202018.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px 15px;width:815px;height:191px;" /> <p><strong>Please see the following links for information on:</strong></p><ul><li>Level 3 restriction guidelines: <a href="http://bit.do/L3-guide" target="_blank">http://bit.do/L3-guide</a><br></li><li>Level 3 water and sanitation tariffs: <a href="http://bit.do/L3-tariffs" target="_blank">http://bit.do/L3-tariffs</a><br></li><li>Level 3 overview: <a href="http://bit.do/L3-overview" target="_blank">http://bit.do/L3-overview</a></li><li>Level 3 FAQs: <a href="http://bit.do/L3-faqs" target="_blank">http://bit.do/L3-faqs</a><br></li></ul>2019-01-13T22:00:00Z1
