KUTULLO- Twenty-one people have been killed in five separate road crashes in Limpopo province 10 people died in a head-on collision on the R555 road next to De Hoop dam at Kutullo last Sunday , while five others were killed in a head-on collision in Thohoyandou on Sunday.
The four crashes that occurred in Sekhukhune, Thohoyandou and also on the N1 road came as a result of head-on collisions. Limpopo Department of Transport says motorists who disobey traffic rules are the cause of most road accidents. Twenty-three people were killed in six separate road crashes within a period of five hours in Limpopo Sunday.
Chief Director for Traffic and Safety, Jane Mulaudzi says deploying traffic officers on all roads will not reduce road crashes as motorists are just not obeying rules.
“Only Sunday we lost 23 people in six accidents, the accidents were caused by reckless driving some were overtaking on barrier lane some were doing u turn on unsafe area so the unfortunate part is that we really like to operate 24/7 as the department but unfortunately it goes with budget.”
