Arrive Alive

Drinking After An Accident

It is an offence for any driver who is involved in an accident to drink alcohol or take a narcotic drug, except when these are ordered or administered by a medical practitioner, until he or she has reported the accident to a traffic or police officer and, if so required by that officer, has been medically examined.

 

Any person who fails to comply may be fined up to R4000 or imprisoned for up to one year, or both.
