It’s my way or the highway
THE city council, just like some political parties, is becoming all too ‘adept’ at trying to justify the unjustifiable to hoodwink voters.
In Friday’s Argus, we read that the council wants to spend R1.5 billion upgrading the beachfront. Its reasons for this just don’t make sense. Later on we read that there is no money to finish the highways or ease traffic congestion. One wonders how it does its calculations or which is the most important. We won’t go into detail about the traffic congestion.
Suffice to say that the traffic department, aka the revenue collection department ,is conspicuously absent during peakhour traffic. You would rather find them walking two-abreast down streets, even side streets writing out parking tickets or sitting on highways with speeding cameras.
Just one more reason to reconsider one’s vote in the coming elections.
The council wants to upgrade the beachfront but does not have money to fix the highways and relieve traffic congestion.
