South Africa's Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) has released a list of the country's most dangerous roads. The list is based on the number of fatalities that took place on National Routes (N), Provincial Routes (R) and Regional Routes (R) in all nine provinces in South Africa. A total of 254 people died on these roads in 2018 and the human behaviour accounts for nine out of ten fatal crashes that occurred on these roads. The Top Ten roads and areas with the highest number of deaths nationally are:
  • R71 Mankweng in Limpopo

  • N4 Nelspruit in Mpumalanga
