Government officials think they own the roads

04 April 2012, 14:08

Ever driven on a highway when all of a sudden you are pushed of the road by blue lights?

Happened to me this morning on the M1 near Rivonia.

Driving along when I see blue lights in my rear view mirror, geeting closer quickly. I moved over into the slow lane to give them way to pass.  Two black Mercs passed and swerved into the lane I was in. Then next to me, two more black Mercs, and oh my word, behind me, the rest of the convoy. I am now boxed in with no where to go! I signaled the one guy next to me to ask if I can get out of this 'box' and he then proceeded into my lane. Coming right at me was this big black car, flashing blue lights, pushing me out of the slow lane onto the shoulder!

Now, terrified of what might happen, don't have anywhere to go, I was forced off the road! And these idiots just kept pushing until I had to pull off the highway and stop my car!

What gives Them the right to Own our roads and safety? They don't give a rats' a@@ about what happens to innocent little you. I am soooo ticked off over this! I could have had an accident. They don't care.

They live in luxioury, drive fancy cars - no get driven around in fancy cars, and we must get out of their way!

I know this has been a long standing issue, but nothing gets done about this! I am fed up!

A captured Public Protector?

The new public protector has very clearly already nailed her colours to the wall, and the signs are there that Zuma was right in pressing for the report on state capture to be handed over from Madonsela to Mkhwebane.  Read more...
