Many people have travelled the national roads over this past weekend going back home after the festive season holidays. Others are leaving home heading to work already.
Transport Minister Dipuo Peters says there have been more than 800 deaths on the nation’s roads since the start of December 2016.
Provincial Traffic Chief Kenny Africa says only two people died in the Western Cape over this weekend. This is good news compared to the past weekends where 19 people died during Christmas weekend and 11 during the New Year weekend.
He says 27 drunk drivers were arrested on national and main roads, which is a big worry.
It a huge concern to us that so many drivers still think they can drink and drive.— Kenny Africa, Western Cape provincial traffic chief
