The Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD has launched the Buya Mthetho Hotline pilot project in order to make reporting reckless and negligent driving behaviour as well as by-law infringements across the City of Johannesburg as easy to report.

The hotline now allows residents to report reckless and inconsiderate road behaviour along with other by-law infringements.

They will be able to upload the footage onto the WhatsApp-based hotline whereafter JMPD will follow up and take the necessary actions.

The City of Joburg says the launch of this pilot project is aimed at creating a safer City that is enhanced for all.

“On a daily basis, JMPD receives complaints of bad driving and blatant disregard of traffic laws and rules. Often and unfortunately, these incidences are not reported to the correct authorities. We encourage our residents to use the Buya Mthetho Hotline and report those that are endangering the safety of others.”

The Reckless Driving Hotline WhatsApp number is 081 410 6338. Voice complaints are still to be reported to JMPD on (011) 375 5911.

  • Residents are urged to take a clear photo or a video of the subject of complaint with registration number of the vehicle and other relevant information.
  • Upload to the hotline with a short description including date, time and location of the incident
  • Provide your name and contact details, which will be kept anonymous.


The City of of Joburg says the photo or video must have been taken by the complainant themselves, and not forward photos or clips taken by a third party or downloaded from other sources and the complainant must also be able and willing to testify against the offender if required in terms of the legal process.

“Once the complaint is received, JMPD will analyse the evidence and deal with it accordingly, including submission of the complaint to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) for prosecution.”

JMPD has urged residents should only record incidents when it is safe to do.
