Western Cape traffic chief Kenny Africa has warned that officials will randomly stop and test public transport vehicles and check that drivers are fit to drive during the festive season.

Traffic officers will be particularly vigilant on the stretch of road linking Beaufort West, Laingsburg and Aberdeen, known as the 'road of death'.

Africa explains that throughout the year, officials have been testing public transport drivers and some motorists on an ad-hoc basis.

We're doing blood tests, sugar tests and cholesterol tests on our truck drivers, bus drivers, taxi drivers and some motorists.

Public transport drivers are tested for fatigue between 8pm and 6am as part of the ongoing efforts to curb road carnage.

Since 2010 we've parked nearly 10 000 taxi drivers because they were overly tired.

Kenny Africa, Western Cape Traffic Chief

We keep a record of the vehicles that we stop and all the drivers that we park due to fatigue.
