Drunk drivers potential murderers
Western Cape Traffic Chief Kenny Africa says anyone who drinks and drives is a potential murderer.
CAPE TOWN - Western Cape Traffic Chief Kenny Africa, on Sunday urged motorists not to drink and drive after Youth Day celebrations.
Africa once again raised his eyebrows on road safety and the blatant disregard for traffic rules by Western Cape motorists.
At the weekend 15 motorists were arrested on the province's roads for driving under the influence.
Africa said that anyone who drinks and drives is a potential murderer.
"It's a public holiday and those who are out there to celebrate Youth Day must respect one another on the roads, especially when it comes to drinking and driving."
Meanwhile, more than 2,000 young people gathered at the Bellville Velodrome in celebration of Youth Day on Sunday.
The crowd was called upon by the Department of Social Development to talk about the problems facing the country's youth today.
Western Cape Social Development MEC Albert Fritz said this was the best way to discover the plight of young citizens and to come up with solutions to meet their needs.
"Today wasn't about speeches and telling young people what to do and how to behave. Today was about interacting in a proactive and digital way."
