Gauteng traffic officials worried about road fatalities
Officials say the biggest culprits are motorists driving drunk or speeding.
JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng traffic police say they are concerned after more than 19 people were killed on the province's roads in the past week.
They say the biggest culprits are motorists driving drunk or speeding leading to as many as six crashes in one day.
In two accidents pedestrians were killed while crossing roads and not looking for oncoming traffic.
Traffic spokesperson Obed Sibasa said, "We are counting body bags every day and that is unacceptable and traumatising. Those fatal accidents should not have happened."
