Gauteng Traffic Police say it will continue to intensify the road safety operations as the Easter weekend draws to a close.

Major routes and freeways leading to Gauteng are expected to be heavily congested by huge traffic volumes as many go back to the province.

According to the preliminary data, about 30 road users have already lost their lives on Gauteng roads this Easter weekend alone.

Most of these fatalities were as a result of drunk driving, unsafe overtaking, driving on excessive speed, passenger overloading and pedestrian’s jay walking on major freeways.

Gauteng Traffic Police spokesperson Sello Maremane says law enforcement officials including traffic authorities will continue to conduct various road safety operations across the province in an effort to save the lives of road users.

“These activities are expected to assist in ensuring the reduction of road accidents within the province. Police will continue to be visible on Gauteng major freeways and patrolling will be intensified to ensure that road users comply with the rules of the road.”

Maremane says drivers are urged to be vigilant, patient and to adhere to road safety rules and regulations.
