Heavy police presences in Hout Bay
12 October 2011
Traffic officials in Cape Town say they have seen an increase in violence between rival taxi drivers in the Hout Bay area.
A taxi driver was stabbed last week and there are reports of drivers having stones thrown at their vehicles.
Traffic spokesperson Merle Lourens says they are monitoring the situation with the assistance of the Metro police.
Last week, Transport MEC Robin Carlisle threatened to shut down taxi services in the area if violence persists.
