Road users urged to report negligent driving

Traffic volumes are expected to peak on major freeways around the country as holidaymakers travel to their various destinations for the Easter long weekend.

Police visibility has been increased and more roadblocks are expected in attempts to reduce road carnage.

Gauteng MEC for Safety Sizakele Nkosi Malobane says road safety plans are in place.

One of the approaches this year is that we are working towards a zero-death on our roads, our guys have been given instructions that anything that contributes to road carnage on our roads must be dealt with, some of this includes removing cars that are not fit to be on the road.

Malobane says motorists should report incidents of reckless driving.

Our people now have smart phones, we take videos and photos for all sorts of things, I think it is time that we use those phones for our own safety as people who are driving. Take down the registration number of that person and report him to us, we will then investigate exactly what happened.
