JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng traffic police have called on road users to keep to the speed limit, with the death toll now standing at a 105, only 17 days into the festive season.

Yesterday two men were arrested on the N4 in the Bronkhorstspruit area for speeding.

The two vehicles were doing almost double the restricted 120km/hour.

Gauteng traffic police's Obed Sibasa said, "People that are going to be irresponsible on our roads, people that are going to be inconsiderate, people that are speeding speeding or drunk drivers on our roads, we are definitely going to arrest them. We are not going to allow people to increase fatality statistics."
