Die talle ernstige motorongelukke op Port Elizabeth se “pad van die hel” het die Nelson Mandelabaai-metro genoodsaak om aansoek te doen om spoedbeheermaatreëls .

John Best, burgemeesterskomiteelid vir veiligheid en sekuriteit, sê Stanfordweg in Port Elizabeth se noordelike gebiede is uiters gevaarlik.

“Die nasionale krieketafrigter, Russel Domingo, se ma was daar in ’n ernstige ongeluk betrokke. Daarbenewens is ’n 39-jarige ma van twee seuns op 19 Junie dood in ’n ongeluk, ook in Stanfordweg.”

Marlon Daniels, raadslid van die Patriotic Alliance, het op Vrydag se vergadering van die komitee vir veiligheid en sekuriteit Stanfordweg beskryf as “ ’n pad van die hel”.

  • Daniels het ’n voorbeeld genoem van hoe hy onlangs in dié straat, wat die noordelike gebiede met die stad verbind, ’n aangeklamde taxibestuurder laat stilhou en die sleutel uit die aansitter verwyder het. Die Oos-Kaapse departement van vervoer het die metro onlangs die groen lig gegee om oortreders wat nie hul verkeersboetes betaal nie, te verhinder om hul motorregistrasie te hernu. “Motoriste moet besef dat verkeersoortredings gevolge dra,” het Best gesê.
