Motorists have been asked to exercise caution on the roads, due to continued road blocks.

The roadblocks which will take place across the country today and through the course of the long weekend, have been put into action to ensure a safer festive season.

According to reports almost 1500 motorists have been arrested since the beginning of December.

“Traffic officials will be taking action against drunken drivers, speedsters and reckless drivers,” says traffic department spokesperson, Kalvin Visser.

Traffic authorities were also deployed to provide assistance on the province's roads in anticipation of heavy traffic volumes.

“We appeal to all people to exercise caution as their will be roadblocks on our city’s roads,” says Visser.

Thus far 564 people have lost their lives in the Western Cape in road accidents alone.
