It is that time of the year when motorists are requested to exercise the utmost care and patience on our roads.
Easter weekend is a time when most families go on holiday and visit relatives.
Scores of people perish on our roads during this time of the year despite warnings to motorists to drive safely.
Major causes of accidents have been linked to drunken driving, speeding and those who embark on long journeys without resting. Pedestrians are also killed in large numbers during Easter weekends.
Traffic authorities must be visible in monitoring major routes and leave no stone unturned in reining in reckless and speeding drivers.
We appeal to motorists to drive carefully and to exercise patience.
This will help all of us arrive alive at our respective destinations.
