Truckers strike: Non-striking drivers being beaten and vehicles being stoned in JHB...

I don't normally like being a bearer of bad news, but if you are on the roads today in Johannesburg, please be super careful as the truckers strike is on the go in full force, and in parts of JHB it has been violent.

News reports have made mention of vehicles burning and being stoned around JHB, in areas such as Germiston, Tembisa and Alberton.
Truck drivers are striking for a 20% salary increase over the next 2 years, while The Road Freight Employers' Association has offered a 15% percent increase.

Be safe out there motorists and non-striking truckers alike...!
