Pretoria - The Gauteng department of community safety on Tuesday has condemned the conduct of a 27-year-old female driver, who is seen in a viral video driving her car with a female traffic officer from Gauteng Traffic Police on her bonnet.
Spokesperson Ofentse Morwane said preliminary information indicates that the incident happened in Krugersdorp on Friday. The Gauteng Traffic Police officer was in the process of issuing the driver with a traffic fine for using a cellphone while driving, when the driver drove off as the officer who was hanging from the bonnet was trying to stop her.
The driver was arrested afterwards for charges including failing to comply with an instruction of a traffic officer, reckless driving and resisting arrest. A fine was also issued for driving while using a cellphone.
