Adele Malan started this petition to Mayor : City of Tshwane

Coming into and going out of Pretoria North via the Poort has become a daily nightmare for commuters. Not only is the never ending road works a headache but the lawless, inconsiderate driving of mostly taxi's which has overflown to other regular road users is causing a huge frustration.
A morning commute that should take about 10 minutes in peak traffic, to get out of Pretoria North via the Poort takes currently about 20-30 minutes on a good day. The same goes for the afternoon commute.
While regular commuters are waiting in line, waiting to get to fetch their children from school, getting to work on time etc, the taxi drivers have no respect for any other driver. They push cars off the road, intimidate other drivers, drive in the bus lane, drive in oncoming traffic, and the list goes on.
Metro Police Officers are rarely visible or active in this very congested traffic area, despite several complaints on the City of Tshwane's Facebook page and other social media. Some days, when Metro Officers are on duty, they sit next to the road, playing games or read messages on their phones. It's been noted how taxi's drive pass them in the bus lanes etc. The community has become negative towards taxi's and City of Tshwane officials because all complaints fall on deaf ears. 
When City of Tshwane commit and show their interest in helping commuters, the community will definitely change their behavior towards the officials and start working together.
