Johannesburg Metro Police spokesperson, Edna Mamonyane says, “It's so easy to make a proper plan. Enjoy yourself, but make a plan to not drive.”Despite all the warnings, people still turn a blind eye and put, not only their own lives in danger, but also their passengers and fellow road users' lives too.
"On busy nights, like on weekends, it could be longer before you are processed and released," says JMPD spokesman, Wayne Minnaar.A docket will be opened and you will be allocated an investigating officer who will follow up on your blood test results. You are then allowed to alert family members or friends of your arrest. You may use your own phone or a telephone at the station.
"It’s about time for people to realise (they) have to take responsibility for (their) own actions," says Mamonyane.WHO released this infographic last year December (2015) to indicate South Africa's significant problem with drunk driving related deaths, compared to the rest of the world.
