#Flashback: Taxi impounded after police find advert in place of real licence disc

The strange 'licence disc' displayed in the taxi's front windscreen.

When a police chief stopped a taxi driving in the emergency lane on the M1 south, little did he know what else he would find.

The chief of the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department David Tembe, stopped a taxi earlier this month for driving in the emergency lane on M1 south at Glenhove off-ramp.

The taxi was also discovered to be unlicensed.

It was then discovered that the taxi was unlicensed and it displayed a strange disc advertising, among others, microwave repairs and washing machine installation. The taxi was impounded for investigation.

Eight other taxis were also fined R500 each at the same spot for using the emergency lane and were impounded for being unroadworthy.

The inside of the impounded vehicle does not appear to be roadworthy.

Details: Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department 086 056 2874.
