The Western Cape has seen an alarming rise in the number of road accidents and deaths this holiday season.
Provincial traffic chief Kenny Africa says December 2015 had 143 road fatalities while only 120 were recorded over the same period in 2014.
Africa said January 2016 fatality figures have already exceeded last year's statistics, in just the second week of the month.
