Our traffic officers face many dangers when keeping our roads safe. They are the targets of criminals who will kill to steal an officerâs firearm.
Even after traffic officer Nizaam Alexander was shot at point blank range he continued to perform his duties. His dedication to serving the public earned him the City of Cape Town Traffic Services Departmental Officer of the Year Award. Show your support for officers like Nizaam Alexander by slowing down, not drinking and driving, wearing your seatbelt and leaving your cellphone alone when driving.
