The Police are aware of reports lodged by members of the public who have received phone calls purportedly from a Traffic Police officer. In these cases, the call recipients were informed that a relative of their neighbour had been involved in a road traffic accident. The call recipients were then asked to inform their neighbour to contact the Traffic Police.
Police would like to clarify that these calls were not made by Traffic Police officers. If in doubt, members of the public are advised to verify the authenticity of such calls by calling the Police hotline at 1800-255 0000.
Members of the public are encouraged to share this advisory with family and friends.
