Nothing done to catch street racers
Where are the law enforcement officers in Oudtshoorn? It seems to have turned into a race track and “lets see who can rev their car enough to blow it up” town. Not only on weekends but every night the main street in Oudtshoorn is turned into a drag strip for cars and bikes, the noise is terrible and this is so dangerous. Has anybody thought what would happen if one of the drivers of these bikes or hotted up race cars lose control and smash into a restaurant or fast food takeaway?
The residential areas are packed with these people who think it is okay, at any time of the day or night, to work on these cars that are supposedly being hotted up for the racetrack. When we saw the traffic department was going to make itself more visible we were thrilled, there has been absolutely no change. Surely I am not the only one that has noticed the increase in this practice!
The letter was received last week and sent to the municipality for comment. No reaction has yet been received. Editor
