Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

According to Sol Plaatje Communication Spokesperson, Sello Matsie, the fine for using a Cellphone whilst driving is R1500,00 and driving without a driver’s licence is R750,00.

There are also no by-laws that authorise the confiscation of a user’s mobile device and/or to detain one if he/she is caught driving without their driving licence. 

This is in response to a message circulating on social media:

WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT:
Please be advised as with immediate effect on radio this morning, any motorist talking on mobile phone while driving, your phone will be taken away and you will have to pay a R2500-00 fine to get it back, Also if you havent got your drivers licence with you will be taken into custody AND PAY 1000-00 before they release you Please send to all famiy and friends to be Alert and Refrain from using Mobile Phones whilst driving.

Statement from Sello Matsie

Dear Motorists- Kimberley jurisdiction

Please be advised that the Sol Plaatje Municipality distances itself from the sms doing rounds on the confiscation of mobile phones by our Law Enforcement Agencies. Our by- laws dont authorise the confiscation of mobile phones and the amounts mentioned are incorrect. The fine for the use of mobile phones while driving is R1500.00 while driving without your driving licence is R750.00 and you wont be held in any custody.

Please assist in preventing unnecessary public panic by not forwading fake news. Thanks for your cooperation.

Regards

Sello Matsie 
Spokesperson
Sol Plaatje Municipality
