Minister of Transport, Fikile Mbalula, shared a social media post that proved that all motorists would be treated equally and that no one will be above the law.
Mbaks took to twitter on Sunday and shared a photo of a Maserati sports car.
His caption read: “NICE CAR, but please Chief, put on the plate - bophelela is you must. Can’t duck and dive road rules. #LiveBeyondJuly”
The message was heard loud and clear – all motorists will need to comply with the rules of the road, whether you drive a Mini or a Maserati.
The minister has never shied away from controversy and his post proved to have a polarising effect on social media users.
While some praised the minister for his zero-tolerance approach, others felt the number plate compromised the aesthetics of the car.
