According to the report by Dikeledi Magadz, The chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Transport is expected new punishments for drivers, especially for drivers who are the influence of alcohol.
As reported by the official statistic, around 1600 people had lost their lives since 1 December 2018 to 8 January 2019.
In Dikeledi Magadz’s opinion, it is time to create new programmes that can help to handle many car crashes:
“Such programmes should inspire responsible driving. It is time that government entities and law enforcement agencies take ownership of what happens on the roads. Law enforcement operations on the roads should be enhanced even if it means inconveniencing the road user,” she said.
