Johannesburg - If you are caught driving under the influence of alcohol in the coming days, you can expect to spend Christmas in jail.
This is the stern warning from the eThekwini municipality’s metro police spokesman, Senior Superintendent Eugene Msomi.
“We have had many roadblocks this month and arrested many people for drunk driving.”
He said year after year, it was unfortunately common to have people spend Christmas in jail.
Since the beginning of this month, Msomi said roadblocks had been set up around the region, in Durban central, the beach areas, Montclair, Austerville and Durban North.
About 140 people had been arrested for drunk driving.
Meanwhile, a spate of accidents around the country have left at least 600 people dead.
The figures were released nationally on Friday by Transport Minister Dipuo Peters.
Yesterday a truck and a bus collided on the R61, near Queenstown in the Eastern Cape, killing three people and injuring 25.
In Durban, accidents on Friday left several people injured.
Netcare911 spokesman Chris Botha said three children and a woman had been injured in an accident on the N2 south on Friday afternoon.
On the M4, near the Umhlanga River, one person was seriously injured after a tipper truck collided head-on with two vehicles.
In Pennington, two people were injured in a head-on smash, one seriously.
