Cape Town -

The Western Cape Provincial Road Traffic Act has been passed by the provincial legislature, the provincial transport department said on Saturday.

“I can now carry out investigations at any vehicle or drivers licence testing station without requiring permission from the national department of transport,” said Western Cape MEC for transport Robin Carlisle in a statement.

“This will greatly assist in dealing with corruption and jailing the offenders.”

He said by January next year, the department will have published conditions for the use of blue lights in the province.

Carlisle said blue lights would only be used in emergency situations.

“I will also issue a regulation requiring all vehicles overtaking cyclists to ensure that there is a safe distance of at least 1.5 meters between them before passing.”

The act was passed on Thursday. - Sapa
