Kenny Africa, Western Cape Provincial Traffic Chief joined Africa Melane on Monday morning to discuss an accident that left eight people dead on the N7 outside Klawer.
What a bad accident yesterday late on the N7 outside Klawer, when this driver with a Corsa motor vehicle overtook in the face of oncoming traffic and collided head on with a passenger bus.— Kenny Africa, Western Cape Provincial Traffic Chief
And unfortunately all the eight occupants in the Corsa motor vehicle lost their lives in this gruesome accident.— Kenny Africa, Western Cape Provincial Traffic Chief
There were four adults and four children in the Corsa motor car. All eight of them lost their lives.— Kenny Africa, Western Cape Provincial Traffic Chief
Africa says the number of people who suffered fatalities caused by road accidents stands at fourteen since the beginning of the Easter Weekend. He says motorists need to change their behaviour and attitudes on the roads.
Just yesterday morning, one of our offices stopped a vehicle on the R27 and this driver was under the influence, drunk behind the steering wheel and he had five kids in his car. Luckily our officers arrested him and took him off our roads.— Kenny Africa, Western Cape Provincial Traffic Chief
Africa stresses that motorists needs to take cognisance of fellow road users and respect one another.
