A man was to appear in the Strand Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday for allegedly trying to bribe a traffic official, the City of Cape Town said.
Traffic services inspector Merle Lourens said the man was told on Monday that he had failed his heavy duty motor vehicle learner’s licence test.
“The applicant then handed a plastic money bag filled with R100 notes, in an apparent attempt to bribe the examiner,” she said.
A supervisor was called and the man admitted that he had tried to bribe the examiner.
“This should serve as a warning to all those who wish to subvert the system through illegal means. Anyone attempting such tactics will be shown no leniency,” said safety mayoral committee member JP Smith.
