Weekend fatalities worrying - WC traffic chief

Western Cape Traffic Chief Kenny Africa says the number of road deaths over the past two weekends are a cause for concern.

Africa says motorist behavior needs to change in order to curb the number of head-on collisions.

This is worrying to us. So many people in the past two weekends died on our roads in the Western Cape.

Kenny Africa, Western Cape Traffic Chief

On Sunday July 31, a gruesome head-on collision between Ceres and Prince Alfred Hamlet left six people dead and another person severely injured.

On Sunday August 7, at least 8 people died in another head-on collision near Malmesbury.

According to Africa, traffic enforcement will be implementing roadblocks across the province from this weekend.

He says that the average speed over distance cameras are helping to curb the road carnage.
