The Department of Transport in KwaZulu-Natal has blacklisted 83 drivers for breaking the law.

One of the drivers was arrested at the Pinetown testing station while trying to renew their driving licence.

Kwanele Ncalane, KZN Department of Transport spokesperson said it was part of efforts by the department to stop corruption within the province.

Ncalane said the department had also started to regulate driving schools in the province in efforts to stop corruption and ensure quality drivers on the roads.

He made these comments after he was asked about the call by the IFP for there to be a commission of inquiry into the high road crashes in the province over the past few months.

The party made the comments in the aftermath of a crash between two trucks and a taxi on the N3 near Estcourt, 14 people died.

Last month 16 people died in a crash between a taxi and a truck on the R66 between Ulundi and Underberg.

Steve Moodley, IFP spokesperson on transport  said they wanted the commission to be formed to find solutions to stop carnage on the roads.
