Following a letter from a concerned reader the George Herald inquired about the progress regarding the speed limit on Knysna Road and whether a speed camera on the section between town and the Garden Route Mall is being considered. This follows after the horror accident in which Caroline van der Merwe (21) lost her life in June this year. Two drivers were allegedly racing each other when they hit Caroline’s car. According to municipal spokesperson, Chantel Edwards-Klose, talks regarding Knysna Road are under way. The George traffic department cannot make any changes to the road without the approval of Province. She says the local traffic department has increased visibility on the road and the possibility of a 24-hour shift system is investigated.
