South Africa – Many victims panic, swerving into other cars or barriers, unable to see due to the shattered glass in their eyes – which poses a danger to themselves and other cars driving nearby. The Minister of Police has not yet released statistics regarding the incidents but has warned motorists of people throwing rocks and bricks from bridges, between Ballito and Tongaat in Durban's north coast, onto vehicles travelling along the N2 below.

While the situation is under investigation, police members have been ordered to patrol the bridge and the surrounding area on a 24 hour basis to prevent any further incidents and, hopefully, identify the perpetrators. Meetings have been held between SAPS, other security departments and the Department of Transport to discuss ways to prevent any further incidents in the future. Several suspects have been taken to the station for questioning but were later released due to a lack of evidence.

SANRAL and the mayors of the affected areas are also getting involved to prevent any further tragedy but, for now, they are issuing warnings to motorists and increasing the police presence in the affected areas and hotspots.

Watch the clip below of the aftermath of one such incident that happened over the festive season.
