13 people died on WC roads over the long weekend

According to Western Cape Provincial Traffic Chief, Kenny Africa, there have been 13 fatalities on the Western Cape roads during this long weekend.

He says most accidents happen between late in the evenings through to early morning. Many have been the results of drunken driving, he says.

He pleaded with municipal traffic services to consider a 24 hours traffic service, thereby increasing visibility on the roads which would help save lives.

We are pleading to the rest of the country, all our Provincial traffic services and Municipal traffic service to join us with the 24 hours traffic service because we can see it is working on our roads

For this whole weekend between Cape Town and Beaufort West and between Cape Town and Plettenberg Bay, we did not have even one fatal accident on our roads. Our offices are there. They are visible

Kenny Africa, Western Cape Provincial Traffic Chief

We are sitting with a behavioural problem and we need to change the attitude and the behaviours of our motorists. But we can only do that when we render a 24/7 service.
