How about fixing the pavements?

2016-11-02 06:05

Sir, THERE is no need to add to the by-laws if the municipality mends potholes, cleans gutters and pavements. Perhaps people could then walk on the pavement instead of in the street where they would not get splashed.

Pedestrians walking up and down Voortrekker Street from the post office to Aheers insist on walking on the road and do not use the pavements.
When pulling out of a parking space drivers are looking over their left shoulder to check on incoming traffic so pedestrians who stand or walk behind parked cars are dicing with death or injury.

The shoulders of the road in Durban Street were left unfinished with dangerous drop-offs the edge of the tar. Was this done just to damage vehicles?
