Death Road" (Hendrik Potgieter Road)

I would like to draw the attention of the road management authorities to the increasing number of road accidents on the West Rand, specifically on Hendrik Potgieter Road.

Many individuals lose their lives or suffer serious injuries because they were knocked down by speeding cars/ taxis or motorcycles.

These drivers often exceed the speed limit or ignore road and stop signs and traffic lights, and drive in the emergency lane. Even worse is that some of them are drunk while driving, as I have witnessed with my own eyes. Cars passing trucks drive straight towards oncoming traffic, which is extremely dangerous

to other road users, pedestrians, cyclists and joggers. Cars and motorcycles racing is the order of the day on Death Road. 

It is time for the road traffic authorities to take stronger action against reckless drivers, which include heavy fines and forfeiting their licences if they are found guilty of breaking the traffic laws, Especially the Taxis.

Although there are speed limits and police roadblocks, those measures are not strictly enforced by the authorities.

There should be Speeding cameras installed all the way from Peter Rd to 14th Avenue. 

Especially at Fred and Harry and Krugerrand Str by the KFC!!! 

We have no peace in this area, specifically on weekends.
