A festive season safety campaign begins in Johannesburg, South Africa’s largest city, on Monday.

The country’s transport Minister Fikile Mbalula is to join Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) chief David Tembe during a roadblock on the M2 Crown Interchange.

“The focus of the campaign will be to address unroadworthy vehicles, drunk and driving, and bad driving behaviour through effective law enforcement and visible policing to encourage motorists to obey road rules, and in this way, reduce road fatalities this festive season,” JMPD spokesperson chief superintendent Wayne Minnaar explained.

According to the statistics over the past year, more than 1, 600 people died on the country’s roads during the December holidays.
