Western Cape drivers have been issued with a stern warning from traffic officials that they mean business in preparation for the bumper festive season.

Although roads are still relatively quiet traffic officials are expecting an influx of motorists as the festive season peaks.

Spokesperson for Community Safety in the Western Cape Makhaya Mani says that to curb accidents and problems experienced on roads a number of roadblocks and stop and search operations were already underway along the N1, N2 and N7.

A daily newspaper reports that as part of the Arrive Alive campaign 3500 traffic officials have been deployed to monitor the province’s roads.

Mani added that the biggest problem was drinking and driving, the overloading of minibus taxis and fatigue drivers.
