KwaZulu-Natal - A taxi owner in Durban has accumulated over 4000 traffic fines totalling R1,6 million in two years, it was reported on Sunday.

Kenneth Melvin Oliver, 48, would be held responsible for fines racked up by the drivers of his fleet of 10 taxis, The Sunday Times reported.

Oliver also reportedly owed R40 000 in fines imposed for violations involving his private cars, one of which was a Jaguar XF 3.0D.

According to the newspaper, the eThekwini metro police had named him as one of its 20 worst offenders.

Oliver had claimed his drivers should be held liable.

“People must understand that drivers come and go. A driver will work for a few days or weeks and then they're gone,” he told the newspaper. - Sapa
