Thumbs up for ac­tion against road hogs

Eyethu Baywatch - - LETTERS • IZINCWADI -

I HAVE to ap­plaud the City of uMh­lathuze for step­ping up ef­forts to deal with drunk driv­ing, speed­ing and traf­fic trans­gres­sions on our roads.

The num­ber of drivers who bla­tantly dis­re­gard the rules of the road and the safety of other drivers and their fam­i­lies is shock­ing.

Driv­ing through our city ev­ery day with my chil­dren, I wit­ness too many drivers skip­ping red traf­fic lights, not sig­nalling which di­rec­tion they are in­tend­ing to go and just bla­tantly ig­nor­ing the speed limit and tail­gat­ing to put pres­sure on other drivers.

There are just too many ac­ci­dents and fa­tal­i­ties on our roads which are caused by this law­less­ness.

So, I com­mend the city for putting mea­sures in place like equip­ping of­fi­cers with high-tech speed cam­eras and en­sur­ing of­fi­cer vis­i­bil­ity across the city.

This will in­deed go a long way in en­sur­ing ev­ery­one’s safety on the roads.
