Cape Town - Bikers filmed doing doughnuts in Long Street last week are set to be charged with reckless and negligent driving by the city’s Traffic Services department.
Mayoral committee member for safety and security JP Smith has also asked that disciplinary action be taken against staff who did not act when they saw the bikers behaving illegally on Thursday night.
Smith wrote on Tuesday night: “After seeing the footage in the YouTube clip and not getting an explanation from the staff, I am calling for action against the staff members and for Traffic Services to lay reckless and negligent driving charges against the motorcyclists concerned.”
‘NOT SO SURE’
He initially said CCTV control room staff had watched the group, but had not launched a law enforcement response because the bikers had done “nothing that constituted a significant traffic violation”.
