Using public transport reduces traffic congestion and death


Transport and community safety MEC in Limpopo, Makoma Makhurupetje has officially launched a transport month during the day at Polokwane cricket club on 02 October 2018. She delivered her message to the community members who were gathered at the ground.

She began by imploring all the attendance to stand to observe a moment of silence for those who lost their lives in the roads. She accused unlicensed drivers as part of those who cause and increase many accidents in the roads.

“The launch of October transport month does not mean the department will stop in its roads safety campaign at the end of the month. We appeal to dagga users to be careful and not smoke and drive. We aware that there are not enough law enforcement officers in the province,” she said.

Makhurupetje has urged commuters to use public transport as they will reduce traffic as well as accidents in the roads.

“Using public transport will guarantee safety for people and the people must stop to buy drivers licenses. We must root out corruption for our government to perform better. We are working with the police and the hawks in making arrest of those who are involved in corrupt activities,” she said.

Makhurupetje said the impoundment fees have been reduced from August this year in the province. She said this does not mean that people should drive without their license.

She said vans should not be used to transport people because when accidents occurs people at the back with no seatbelts dies.

“People should obey the rules of the road because road safety is everyone’s responsibility,” she concluded.
