The Road Freight Association (RFA) is calling police to step up efforts to ensure the safety of truck drivers.

In a spate of recent attacks on trucks, up to 25 trucks were petrol-bombed, burnt, shot at or stoned since Thursday.

“We have got to be very careful not to make the first move to escalate violence. Meanwhile, the All Truck Drivers Foundation, striking against the employment of foreign nationals, denied any involvement in the torchings.

Several trucks were set alight last week, along major routes in Gauteng and Kwazulu Natal.
