LEPHALALE — According to Mr Pilusa, Head of the Municipal Traffic Department, reckless driving in and around Lephalale is still a huge challenge. “We deal with motorists not following the traffic rules on a daily basis” he says.
Traffic officials experienced two incidents of hit and run in Marapong during the past week, Pilusa said at the CPF meeting on Thursday 20 April.
“We need to stop reckless driving because it leads to deaths and sad families.
If we don’t stop it, people will die and it is completely unnecessary” Pilusa concluded.
Stephan Manamela, DA councillor in Marapong, said it is an attitude problem and that law enforcement should be tighter.
The people who violate the law should know what is going to happen to them. They don’t know the rules and do not see policing – we have to assist each other. He added that there are no longer efficient speed humps in Marapong and that this should be rectified sooner rather than later in order to prevent motorists from speeding.
