De Freitas, Mr MS to ask the Minister of Transport

(a) What are the details of incidents of taxi violence that have been recorded (i) in each province, (ii) in each month in the past three financial years and (iii) since 1 January 2018, (b) for how long did each incident continue in each instance, (c) what were the reasons for each incident, (d) how were the incidents resolved in each case and (e) what is being done to reduce such incidents in future?


a) Taxi conflicts and violence are handled by provinces because they are largely inter or intra provincial. Therefore, the information required is not readily available with the Department and has been requested from provinces since they are responsible for the coordination of land transport functions. The Department will, as soon as it receives these reports from provinces, submit a consolidated national response.
