DRUNK DRIVING: Traffic officials will launche a campaign against drunk drivers as of October 2011.

A campaign against drinking and driving will be launched in October, said the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC).

"A major, hard-hitting, nationwide drink and drive campaign will commence in October to combat the carnage caused by alcohol abuse," said RTMC acting CEO Collins Letsoalo in a statement.

"We will not show mercy to road users who think that public roads are an extension of their shebeens or pubs," said Letsoalo.

In September 2011 about 100 people were killed in road accidents.

Letsoalo said traffic officers would monitor roads where there had been a high number of car accidents.

As the festive season was drawing near, the RTMC appealed to "fun-lovers" to enjoy themselves responsibly.

He urged parents to arrange reliable transport for pupils attending matric farewells and appealed to companies to arrange drivers for employees attending year-end functions.
