Masina launched the city's road safety campaign along the N3 highway, urging motorists to adhere to the rules of the road.

"Our message is that we must be responsible. We mustn't drink and drive. It is important that everyone return home safely after the festive season," says Masina.

Ekurhuleni has three major highways running through it, including the N3. As South African prepare to hit the roads, Masina says they must buckle up and stay sober.

He adds that being a law enforcement officer is an honour and a respected profession.

"Anyone trying to bribe our officers, note that they are not for sale," he says.
