Side tipper truck crashes have been the subject of heated debate as they seem to happen often. After being banned on the N2 Pongola route these trucks moved to the R34/R66 and they didn’t stop crashing.

Communities living along the highway ended up protesting against the new visitors as they continuously caused crashes on the road which has been somewhat quiet before.
