Multiple vehicle accidents in one week



Just days after the unbanning of the sale of alcohol and easing of the curfew, unhappy people in Ga-Masemola embarked on a two nights strike demanding the construction of a traffic circle or speed humps at Thabampshe cross.

A night strike on Saturday and Sunday saw residents burning tyres and stoned police vehicles along R579 road at four ways calling on the department of Transport and Community Safety to construct speed humps with immediate effect

According to pupils who participated on the strike, four years back, the Member of Executive Committee (MEC) responsible for Transport and Community Safety, Makoma Makhurupetje had promised to construct speed humps or a traffic circle.

But till date, nothing has happened and in fact there’s no single sign.

And for that reason community held evening strike to express their anger on the street cited how innocent souls were lost over irresponsible drivers.

“Three accidents in a week, not counting the previous ones,” quoted on a placard

Concerned residents said something should be done to avoid more accident on R579 road, stating that people are seriously getting injured.

“We cannot reverse the lives of people who lost their lives on that potion but we can do something to prevent more accident to occur in future,” said participants.

Members of the community said the increase in accidents has been attributed to irresponsible drivers who avoid road signs and end up losing control of their vehicles, causing them to overturn.

“For everyone living in this area, we should be concerned about each other’s safety and always be vigilant when driving.”

Residents however understand the road is the busiest as it is the only main road but it also became a high accident zone.

Residents have called upon the responsible department to ensure that speed humps or a traffic circle is constructed to ensure the safety of people’s lives.
