JOHANNESBURG - Thousands of motorists are making their way out of Gauteng this evening as holiday makers head to their destinations for the Easter long weekend.
The N1 north to Limpopo has recorded the highest volumes with more than 2,200 cars driving through toll plazas per hour as worshipers make their way to Moria.
The N3 south bound to KwaZulu-Natal is averaging over 2,000 motorists per hour while traffic on the N1 towards Bloemfontein is also picking up.
Spokesperson Obed Sibasa says the number is likely to increase this evening and has warned motorists to obey the rules.
"Road users [should] work with us, can comply and are considerate, can buckle up, don't drink and drive and don't overtake unsafely."
