Motorists encouraged to rest when driving long distances to avoid accidents

# Mpumalanga MEC for Community Safety, Security and Liaison, Vusi Shongwe is calling on those travelling long distances to rest sufficiently along the way. He says fatigue affects the quality of the decisions drivers make, and could result in accidents. Five-thousand-248 drivers were issued with summonses for various offenses since Thursday. Over 130 vehicles were also discontinued, with 119 impounded by traffic officers. Shongwe is calling on  law enforcement officers to continue showing zero-tolerance to errant drivers and enforce the law without fear or favour.
