Lamiez Holworthy has become the latest victim of a syndicate that targets motorists on the N4 highway.
The Metro FM presenter took to Twitter on Monday, 19 April to share that two of her vehicle's tyres were "messed" when she drove over spike traps on the N4.
The media personality shared that she drove to a filling station to change the tyres. She tweeted:
"Two tyres messed because of a spiked object in the fast lane on the N4! Thank God I was able to control the car and also wasn’t too far from a filling station. Please be careful and extra vigilant on the N4!!!"
Anti-crime activist Yusuf Abramjee recently warned motorists about spikes on the N4 highway, north of Pretoria. He took to Twitter and said:
"These gangs are attacking motorists regularly. Once you stop, you are robbed."
Lamiez's fans took to her comment section to share their reactions to her post. Check out some of their comments below:
"So, because the SAPS are aware of what's happening on the N4, why is nothing being done about it?"
"There was an arrest in the past 72hrs. One suspect. I guess maybe it's a syndicate or a copied trend spilling to other sections."
"So unimpressed ngoba I thought they were arrested."
"N4 is a serious problem. A friend got spiked as well yesterday around the Equestria side. Glad he is safe as well. I was not so lucky almost 2 years ago."
"This is scary as hell, when I saw that they arrested one on Friday I was relieved now this. I will make sure to use Lynnwood Road after hours... no more N4."
"Glad you are safe, there have been similar reported incidents in the area in recent weeks. It is the work of criminals."
