10 Most Dangerous Roads In South Africa – The Ultimate List From The Police

No one wants to fall victim to criminals. But then, with knowledge comes the empowerment to avoid areas that might otherwise put one in danger. In South Africa, like in many other countries around the world, some areas are of special interest to law enforcement because of the prevalence of crime there.

As a result, authorities often warn people about them, letting them know how dangerous such places are, and the need to exercise caution in the event one has to pass through such locations for whatever reason.

In South Africa, for instance, ten roads have been named as the most dangerous in the country. Contributing factors for the naming include location and poor lighting. The listed roads are given below.

  • N1 – Midrand to Carousel.
  • N1 South – Naturena to Vaal River.
  • N3 South – Leondale to Heidelberg.
  • N4 East – Towards Bronkhorstspruit.
  • N4 West – Akasia to Brits.
  • N12 Golden Highway – Towards Potchefstroom.
  • N17 Freeway – Wemmer Pan to Devon.
  • R59 – Tulisa Park to Vaal River.
  • R80 Mabopane Freeway – Eskia Mphahlele Road to Soshanguve.
  • Ben Schoeman Road – Midrand to Kgosi Mampuru Correctional Centre.

It is said that hijackings often occur on these roads. But then, such could be resolved by addressing what makes those roads the most dangerous in the first place.
