Lack of courtesy part of the problem

20 May 2016, 09:32  - Joyce.Jagaroo

YOUR correspondent Dijen Sahadeo (The Witness, May 17) has threatened never to return to the Cars in the Park event.

That would be a good thing for him and probably for Cars in the Park.

I spent the entire day at the event and had endless opportunities to observe the goings-on, one of which was the rank impatience and poor behaviour of a number of drivers who do not understand the concept of courtesy and co-operation. Perhaps your correspondent was one of them, perhaps not.

I am convinced that this attitude deficiency, as much as any perceived shortcoming in planning or execution by RTI personnel and other organisations tasked with traffic control, was a factor in the difficulties experienced by visitors attempting to head for home. With more than 14 000 visitors attending the site within a space of eight hours, the vast majority of whom had a grand day, some congestion was inevitable.

The tone of your correspondent’s letter isn’t helpful.

He might like to try the hours-long wait in traffic getting to see a pop group at FNB Stadium or an air show at Zwartkops Air Base near Pretoria, to give some perspective to his cavilling.

By all means, stay at home, Mr Sahadeo.
