PROJECT: ROAD SPIKING

YOU MAY SHARE THIS PUBLIC DOCUMENT
 

Mr Mike Bolhuis has been receiving numerous requests to comment on the recent road spiking incident involving the Transport Minister, Sindisiwe Chikunga, and her bodyguards on the N3-highway near Heidelberg.


While it is unfortunate that this incident happened to the minister, it is essential to remember that many unsuspecting members of the public have experienced similar traumatic and sometimes fatal incidents.


In South Africa, it is the duty of the authorities to ensure the safety of all citizens and they must take responsibility for any failure in this regard.


 Although this incident gained attention owing to the victim's high-ranking government position, many others have also fallen victim to the same type of crime and their plight cannot be ignored.

 

LISTEN TO THIS INSIGHTFUL INTERVIEW HERE:



  • Road spiking refers to a criminal activity where individuals strategically place sharp objects or spikes on roads to puncture the tires of vehicles passing over them.

  • The intent is often to force vehicles to stop, allowing criminals to carry out robberies or other illicit activities.

  • This method is a dangerous form of crime and poses significant risks to the safety of motorists.

  • Authorities in South Africa and other places where this type of activity occurs often take measures to address and prevent such incidents, such as increased police patrols, public awareness campaigns, and the use of surveillance technology.

 

GAUTENG HIGH-RISK ROADS:

10 high-risk roads in Gauteng where spiking and car accidents happen the most frequently:

  • N1 – Midrand to Carousel.

  • N1 South – Naturena to Vaal River.

  • N3 South – Leondale to Heidelberg.

  • N4 East – Towards Bronkhorstspruit.

  • N4 West – Akasia to Brits.

  • N12 Golden Highway – Towards Potchefstroom.

  • N17 Freeway – Wemmer Pan to Devon.

  • R59 – Tulisa Park to Vaal River.

  • R80 Mabopane Freeway – Eskia Mphahlele Road to Soshanguve.

  • Ben Schoeman Road – Midrand to Kgosi Mampuru Correctional Centre.


 

PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES WHEN DRIVING:

  • Avoid driving alone at night.

  • Ensure that your vehicle is fully functional.

  • When driving alone, ensure that your live location on your cell phone is activated and a trusted family member or friend is tracking your progress.

  • Avoid driving over anything on the road, including plastic bags.

  • When passing under a bridge, change lanes just before you pass.

  • Reduce your speed to increase your chances of seeing obstacles on the road.

  • Concrete lintels are being used as well. If you cannot avoid them any other way, slow down and carefully drive over them.

  • If the circumstances allow, travel straddling two lanes as it may help you miss spikes being placed in the lane.

  • If there is another vehicle present, drive six seconds or more behind so their driving can alert you if anything is amiss.

  • If the highway is quiet enough and safety allows for it, drive across the island (if it is possible) and travel in the opposite direction.

  • If you spot an obstacle before you reach it, move into the emergency lane or onto the grass if that section of the highway allows for it.

  • If you do hit a spike, reduce your speed to approximately 30-40km/h and continue driving to the nearest place of safety instead of stopping immediately.
