JOBURG motorists face a new terror.
Smash-and-grab thugs are no longer satisfied with just targeting unsuspecting drivers at traffic lights. They’ve now been spotted on the M1 north double-decker highway, which is congested by roadworks, making easy pickings!
Yesterday, motorists saw three men armed with guns brazenly walking up to drivers’ windows, knocking and demanding their valuables.
The Joburg Roads Agency announced that there will be additional road closures on the M1 for the next two weeks.
Agency spokeswoman Bertha Peter-Scheepers said members of the public should familiarise themselves with the lane restrictions during off-peak as well as peak times, to plan their route in advance and avoid delays.
