With traffic volumes on the N3 Toll Route expected to rise sharply towards Gauteng from Sunday as holiday makers start to return home, the N3 Toll Concession has appealed to motorists to adhere to the rules and to remain patient and alert while driving.
The N3TC said peak traffic conditions are expected to continue on Monday.
Spokesperson Thania Dhoogra said lapses in concentration can negatively impact on driving skills.
“When drivers fail to pay attention, they often don’t notice potential risks timeously and are slow to react. Avoid making unintended mistakes and causing harm, by planning ahead, making provision for possible delays and taking regular rest stops.”
Meanwhile, the SA Weather Service has warned that severe weather conditions may be experienced along parts of the route reminding road users to reduce their speed, increase following distances and keep the cars lights on.
