How to report reckless driving

Residents can report reckless and inconsiderate road behaviour, along with other by-law infringements, by using the JMPD hotline.

The hotline, which is based on the WhatsApp platform, enables residents to upload footage and provide relevant information. JMPD will then follow up and take necessary actions.

To report an incident, residents must take a clear photo or video of the subject of complaint, including the vehicle’s registration number and other relevant information.

They can then upload the footage to the hotline with a short description of the incident’s date, time, and location. They also need to provide their name and contact details, which will be kept anonymous.

It’s important to note that the complainant must have taken the photo or video themselves. Forwarded photos or clips taken by a third party or downloaded from other sources will not be accepted.

The complainant must also be able and willing to testify against the offender if required in terms of the legal process.

Once JMPD receives the complaint, they will analyze the evidence and take appropriate action, including submitting the complaint to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) for prosecution.
