DA Limpopo Spokesperson on Safety, Security and transport
The Democratic Alliance sends its deepest condolences to the families of 10 people who passed away over the weekend in an accident that took place at Hlanganani outside Makhado. They are in our thoughts and prayers.
The accident occurred on the N1 to Makhado. This is an extremely dangerous road – regularly claiming lives.
The latest spate of accidents across the province should be a wake-up call for the Limpopo Road Inspectorate to get out of their comfort zone and to enforce the traffic laws. Traffic laws must be enforced at all times. This will save lives on our roads.
We further call on the law enforcement agencies to escalate their presence on the roads and to take swift action against those who violate the rules of the road.
