  1. Pedestrians and cyclists most vulnerable on our roads mainly due to *****s of drivers.

    Ofcourse, inadequate road designs which do not take into account the fact that more than 70% of journeys in our country are non-motorised.

    Ba LT, if the Toyota Noah was driving from south to north instead, did the cyclist have a chance to survive? …

  2. No road signs also contribute to these tragedies, are there road signs and speed humps in that area as there should be considering that it is near a clinic. I’m certain the answer is NO!

    We will continue dying in traffic accidents whilst Ratsa are making money from fake compliance penalties using their expensive computerised system. What is needed to save lives are simple practical things which these guys are failing to implement what is wrong with you guys? Are you devil worshipers or what? Why cant you put road signs, speed humps and road markings at the appropriate places? Rather you want people to die? Ratsa you continue to disappoint us.
