Traffic flow in the Free State province has subsided, this is according to the Free State Department of Traffic Spokesperson, Kabelo Moloabi. However, he warns road users that during the days approaching the new year, traffic law enforcers will still be on the lookout for transgressors. So far 63 people have been arrested for exceeding the speed limit, and impounded 73 cars for operating without permits in the province, since the beginning of the festive season.
“Approaching the new year our deployment is not going to change. We are going to make sure that our law enforcers are ready. We have made sure that we are very visible on roads that runs through the province, and that law enforcement is being adhered to. Those that do not want to adhere to the law will be taken care of,” he added.
Moloabi says traffic volumes on the N3 and N1 south bound are currently normal. He says law enforcement officers are still on the road ensuring that road users abide by the law. “As the Free State Province we are going to ensure that make sure each and every one who does not want to comply with traffic laws will be arrested” said Moloabi. Moloabi says traffic is expect to increase in the new year as holiday makers make their way back home.
