In an interview with eNCA, transport Minister Fikile Mbalula urged motorists to continue to comply with lockdown regulations during level 4.
Mbalula said there has been a gradual increase of compliance from motorists since the beginning of the lockdown. He said that there are still those who are taking risky chances however and are not adhering to regulations.
The minister cautioned that the easing of regulations does not mean the lockdown is over. He confirmed that operation times of taxis will be extended but they will not be allowed to increase their passenger capacity.

Mbalula said the situation will be closely monitored.
