In a statement, national police spokesman Chief Superintendent Paul Nyathi threatened to use spikes again stating that some motorists were now violating traffic rules and regulations since police suspended their use.
The police has also noted that there is a small clique of unruly motorists who are not stopping at law enforcement checkpoints. They pass through red robots, cut corners at road junctions and intersections and in the process cause chaos in the central business district by flouting road rules and regulations. This conduct must stop forthwith. Errant motorists should not cry foul if they are arrested. Police will make use of spikes to stop these dangerous motorists if this bad conduct continues.
