Pretoria - Over 231 motorists have felt the sting of North West women law enforcers on public roads since they embarked on special operations to commemorate women's month.

North West MEC for Human Settlements, Public Safety & Liaison, Desbo Mohono, says that in the first week of the operations aimed at reducing accident fatalities and combating lawlessness on public roads, the women officers stopped over 2 000 vehicles from around Brits and arrested 70 motorists for driving without driver licenses.

According to Mohono, they issued summonses to 47 other motorists for driving unlicensed motor vehicles and over 100 others for driving unroadworthy vehicles.

The zero tolerance law enforcement special operations include women traffic officers from the Provincial Road Traffic Management Unit of the Department of Human Settlements, Public Safety & Liaison based in Bojanala District, South African Police Service and Madibeng Local Municipality.

Mohono says that the operations will be intensified across the province until the end of August.
