Road users urged to drive safely

With the holiday season upon us, the South African Police Service (SAPS) once again remind people to remain vigilant.

People are urged to obey the rules of the road. By following the triple “P” approach of being prepared, patient and polite when on the roads will go a long way in preventing road carnage.

Drinking and driving and speeding are some of the major causes of fatal accidents. This is taboo on our roads and transgressors will face the full might of the law, the SAPS said.

Another underestimated factor that contributes to the carnage on roads is fatigue.

Take turns driving with another licensed driver and if driving on your own, make regular stops to avoid fatigue.

Motorists should plan their travel routes well in advance and make their whereabouts known to family and friends.

Also, avoid travelling at night and in remote areas.

Carry an emergency kit to assist when you experience a vehicle breakdown or are involved in an accident.

During this time of the year, the SAPS, law enforcement agencies and emergency services are kept busy attending to serious and fatal accidents on national and residential roads. Members of the public are urged to ensure compliance with road safety speed limits and the general rules of the road.

Buckle up and do not drink and drive, the SAPS urged.
