One way to protect yourself is to exercise extra caution.

Warren Tucker, the Motoring Enthusiast, and Gugs Mhlungu were conversing.

According to reports, the number of spiking incidents on Gauteng’s roads has significantly increased.

Spiking is when spikes are thrown onto the road in an attempt to harm your car and force you to stop.

Criminals will rob you of your valuables after you stop.

According to Tucker, these incidents typically occur in the early morning and late at night.

Bricks and glass bottles are also being thrown onto the roads in addition to spikes.

It is presented so that you can see it quickly.

Avoid driving over anything in the road, including a plastic bag, it is advised for motorists.

Tucker advises you to slow down and try to leave the area to a safe place if you have accidentally driven over these spikes or any other object in the road that has damaged your car.

The fact that South Africans must live in this manner is a sad state of affairs.

Top Auto offers the following advice on how to avoid being spiked:

Change lanes just before you cross a bridge when doing so.

Reduce your speed to increase the likelihood that you will encounter roadblocks.

Additionally, concrete lintels are being used. Slow down and carefully drive over them if there is no other way to avoid them.

Travel through two lanes if the situation permits, as it might prevent spikes from being inserted into the lane.

Drive six seconds or more behind any other vehicles in the area so they can warn you if something is wrong.

Drive across the island ( if it is possible ) and take the opposite route if the highway is quiet enough and safe to do so.

Move into the emergency lane or, if that section of the highway permits it, onto the grass before you encounter an obstacle.

According to the police, these are Gauteng’s top 10 high-risk roads:

N1: Midrand to Carousel

Naturena to the Vaal River on the N1 South

Leondale to Heidelberg via N3 South

N4 East: In the direction of Bronkhorstspruit

N4 West: British to Akasia

N12 Golden Highway: Ahead of Potchefstroom

Wemmer Pan to Devon on the N17 Freeway

R59: Vaal River to Tulisa Park

R80 Mabopane Freeway: Soshanguve to Eskia Mphahlele Road

Ben Schoeman Road, Midrand to Kgosi Mampuru Correctional Center

I’m not sure why there is n’t police visibility or patrolling on these roads.
