Cape Town - The City’s Traffic Service arrested a driving instructor for drunk driving on Wednesday night.
A traffic officer, on his way home, was approached by a member of the public at an intersection along Vasco Boulevard, who indicated that something appeared amiss with the driver of a Toyota Atos, said City traffic spokesperson Maxine Bezuidenhout.
"At the light change, the vehicle drove off and nearly hit the kerb. The traffic officer activated his lights and sirens to bring the vehicle to a stop.
"The driver, who was unable to produce a driving license, appeared heavily intoxicated and unable to stand unassisted," Bezuidenhout said.
"His breathalyzer reading was more than four times the legal limit."
