Pine Pienaar, DA spokesperson for Roads and Public Works, calls on motorists to take extra care when driving in the Port Elizabeth region and in the Eastern Cape today. Weather conditions are not good and we urge motorists to drive carefully. Motorists should drive with their headlights on, keep safe following distances and keep within the speed limits. They must be on the lookout for pedestrians and animals on the road.
The accident-statistics are looking better than last year at this stage. I want to thank motorists for their diligence so far.
