- A traffic officer was filmed confronting a motorist
- The cop is heard asking where he got his licence
- According to the post, it is believed that the man 'bought' his licence
A traffic officer has been filmed calling a man out who allegedly bought his driver's licence. A video of the incident was posted on Facebook by South Africa Live.
"Chinese caught with fake SA driving licence," the post was captioned, adding: "Anyone know how much licences go for these days??"
The video shows the cop questioning the man and a woman about his driver's licence. The officer repeatedly asked where he got his licence, suggesting he might have bought it.
At one point, Briefly.co.za heard the officer asking how the man could have passed the learner's and driver's licence tests if he could not even speak English.
It was not revealed where or when the video was filmed.
The video was posted on Facebook on Thursday and in less than a day, it gathered over 116 000 views.
South Africans were quick to give their views on the footage and some said it was the reason why there were so many accidents on the roads.
Jantjie Dlamini commented: "We've got ourselves to blame, our people, our traffic officers who sell licences to these guys."
Mummy Matla added: "That is why there are so many accidents in SA."
Sheila Goose wrote: "That's why there's so many accidents in this country. People who can't even ride a bicycle has a drivers licence and for just in case a PDP too."
