JOHANNESBURG - Several motorists have been killed in road accidents across the country over the long weekend, with traffic authorities urging South Africans to drive more carefully this festive season.

Four people were killed following a collision in Bloemfontein on Sunday, while another three were killed in Margate on the South Coast.

On Monday, another four people died in two separate accidents in Kimberley and Pietermaritzburg.

Meanwhile, at least 16 people have died since Friday on the Western Cape's roads.

Provincial Traffic Chief Kenny Africa says, "Already at the start of this festive season we've arrested three motorists for high speeding on the roads. We will keep having speed traps on our roads 24/7."
