The RGPF is calling for a change in behaviour and attitude by motorists who use our nation’s roads irresponsibly, risking the lives of passengers, other road users and their own lives.
The RGPF remains resolute in its enforcement of the laws to ensure road safety and is also asking the general public to help make the roads a safer place by adhering to the rules and regulations of the use of the road.
Persons are urged to use the roads in a proper manner to reduce accidents and fatalities.
