In Gauteng this morning, we arrested a 28-year-old travelling on the N1 towards Pretoria who clocked 209 km p/h on a 120 km zone. The message is simple: bail was not granted. We are not going to negotiate enforcement.— Obed Sibasa, Gauteng traffic services spokesperson
From the 1st of December up until yesterday, not so good. We've already lost 109 lives on the road, we're well over the figure of last year.— Kenny Africa, Western Cape Traffic Chief
We are still carrying on with our road blocks. As it is, we have arrested 258 drunk drivers from the 1st of December to the 23rd of December.— Zinhle Mngomezulu, KZN road traffic spokesperson
