Mpumalanga Community Safety, Security and Liaison MEC, Vusi Shongwe, has appealed to road users to adhere to road safety regulations during the coming Easter weekend.
Shongwe says violation of traffic rules was the main contributor to a number of road crashes in the province during the previous Easter period.
Shongwe says traffic officers found taking bribes will be arrested.
He has also advised public transport operators to ensure that their vehicles are roadworthy.
“We want to appeal to our road users that all of us as we will be going to our different churches we adhere to road safety and we make sure that our pedestrians on our road are safe and are protected.
Shongwe adds: “We are going to make sure that there’s no drinking and driving on our road. They do not overload and they make sure that they fasten their seat belt their cars that they are using are roadworthy.”
