Transport Minister Mbalula pleased with Durban July road safety campaign
The department launched #LiveBeyondJuly Road Safety campaign with the objective of reducing the road carnage.
JOHANNESBURG – Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula said he was pleased that the number of road accidents have declined during the Durban July weekend compared to previous years.
The department launched #LiveBeyondJuly road safety campaign with the objective of reducing the road carnage.
Over 100 people have been arrested since Friday, most of them for drunken driving.
The department's spokesperson Ayanda-Allie Paine said that the campaign has been a big success.
“We’ve seen 100 people arrested for a number of infringements; the most dominant there being drunk driving.
“For example, we saw a driver from one of the e-hailing services seven times over the legal limit of alcohol consumption before one gets behind the wheel of a car.”
