Johannesburg - There will be a zero tolerance approach for traffic violations en route to the Zion Christian Church (ZCC) prayer meeting in Taung, the North West department of public safety said on Friday.

At least 120 traffic officers were deployed on Friday to ensure no reckless and negligent driving, spokesperson Lesiba Kgwele said in a statement.

"The deployment is in anticipation of high volumes of traffic [for] thousands of members of the Zion Christian Church [who are] expected to travel to the Taung sports ground for a weekend prayer meeting," said Kgwele.

He said police would maintain high visibility on all the major routes leading to and from Taung this weekend.

"Provincial road traffic management authorities urge motorists to co-operate with traffic officials, and to obey signage that will direct them to a demarcated parking reserved for the various types of motor vehicles."

Kgwele said ZCC marshals would also be deployed to guide motorists to the correct parking areas.

He also advised motorists that a tarred road between Taung Station and the village would be closed to traffic from 15:00 on Saturday until Sunday at about 17:00.
