Western Cape Traffic Chief Kenny Africa says traffic officials will be out if full force on major roads this weekend.
Africa explains that there will be roadblocks across the province, on all the national and main routes.
This is in an effort to remove unroadworthy and overloaded vehicles, as well as drunken drivers from the roads.
Make sure your vehicles are in a roadworthy condition. We will take no nonsense, we will take your vehicle off the road.— Kenny Africa, Western Cape Traffic Chief
The roads will be extremely busy this pay day/month-end/ school-holiday weekend, and Africa has already reported on high volumes of traffic moving in and out of Cape Town.
He says the N1 from Worcester towards Cape Town, and the N2 towards Sir Lowry's Pass will see more traffic.
Africa says authorities are also expecting high volumes of traffic headed to the Hermanus Whale Festival which takes place this weekend.
He has urged motorists to keep safe following distances, adhere to speed limits and be aware of roadworks across the province.
