Western Cape MEC of Transport
and Public Works Donald Grant has extended the Average Speed over Distance
Enforcement System ahead of the Easter weekend.
MEC Grant in a statement said
the department remains confident that with the ASOD system in place, more and
more people will slow down on the roads reducing their likelihood of being
involved in an accident.
Siphesihle Dube said Average Speed over Distance system is a system that we
have used in various stretches of provincial roads including the N1, the R61
and the R27 to improve safety and reduce the number of crashes caused by speed.
Dube said this latest phase
now extends the speed to cover a total of 452km of the provinces roads and we
are confident that we will continue to see decrease number of incidents on those
roads, which will in turn save many lives.
