GTP Traffstats advised motorists to exercise caution in potential risk areas.
"Slow down‚ keep left in areas like notorious N12 to allow reaction time and opportunity to steer away out of danger area."
Two drivers were injured near Lanseria north west of Johannesburg on Wednesday when stones were thrown at a truck while a reward of more than R250‚000 is on offer for information leading to the arrest of rock-throwers in KwaZulu-Natal.
