WATCH: Female Motorist drives off with #trafficPOLICE officer on the bonnet. A mini-bus #taxi driver came to the rescue when he pulled over in front of the vehicle.
A video of an Audi driver is circulating on Twitter after the driver was recorded refusing to stop while the traffic officer was on the bonnet of the moving car. A mini-bus taxi driver came to the rescue when he pulled over in front of the vehicle.
Twitter streets were abuzz with some finding the 17-second video hilarious.
The Department of Community Safety in Gauteng has launched an investigation into a video showing what appears to be a traffic officer hanging onto the bonnet of a moving car.
The driver was apparently attempting to avoid a traffic fine from the officer, who clung onto the bonnet in an effort to stop the vehicle.
It’s still unclear when and where the incident took place.
Gauteng community safety spokesperson Ofentse Morwane says they still need to probe the authenticity of the video.
“We can confirm, as the Department of Community Safety, that this video was brought to our attention this afternoon and we have therefore requested a full report from the traffic police where it will give us the facts.
“The report that the traffic police is going to give to us will say what has led to this person’s behaviour.
Morwane says the department expects a response on Tuesday.
Traffic officer stuck on moving car’s bonnet on Robert Broom Drive
The News has been made aware of a video doing the rounds on Facebook of a traffic officer who is stuck on the bonnet of a moving car on Robert Broom Drive, in what looks like the Rant-en-Dal area.
In the video, an unmarked minibus, similar to a taxi, is seen pulling over the car with the officer still on it. The minibus is also an official vehicle which was chasing after the car.
The incident happened yesterday, 16 September and the whole ordeal was filmed by a passenger in another car.
According to the spokesperson of the Mogale City Traffic Department, the officer on top of the vehicle is a Gauteng traffic officer.
It is not yet clear how this incident happened, but the News was informed by the #Gauteng Provincial #Traffic #Police that a statement about what happened will be released in due course.
