There have been over 20 deaths on the country's roads since the start of the long weekend.

Eleven people were killed and three others are fighting for their lives following a taxi accident on the N3 near Harrismith.

It appears a minibus taxi and a light motor vehicle collided head-on.

Netcare 911's Jeff Wicks says, “The two vehicles slammed into one another. They were travelling at high speed. Five occupants of the light motor vehicle and six of the taxi were killed on impact.”

In another accident, two people were killed and a third was critically injured when two light motor vehicles collided on the N4 near the Watermeyer Road Bridge in Pretoria.

Both vehicles were travelling in the same direction on Saturday morning when one slammed into the rear of the other causing them to spin out of control.

Meanwhile, the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) has appealed to motorists travelling this long weekend to be responsible.

The corporation says drivers need to make sure they are fit to drive and their vehicles are road worthy.

It says over long weekends motorists cram too many passengers in their vehicles while travelling between provinces.

The RTMC's Ashraf Ismail says drivers need to drive safely.

“We urge motorists not to drink and drive.”
