Cape Town - In a move to curb South Africa's appalling road death toll, Transport Minister Dipuo Peters is proposing restrictions for goods vehicles on public roads.

According to the department, the restrictions will affect commercial vehicles with a gross vehicle mass (GVM) exceeding 9 000kg.

The intended regulations will be published for public comment and discussion later in 2015.
