Uvongo Drive lacks speed humps

2016-08-18 06:00

I HAVE lived in Uvongo Drive for 13 years and have witnessed, on a daily basis, numerous speedsters driving along this road (speed limit is 60km/h) with absolutely no regard to the fact that it is a residential area with children and animals around.

A petition was signed two years ago for speed humps to be installed but nothing has happened apart from two lines being painted on the road by the municipality, marking for one lot of speed humps to be installed.

This is useless as Uvongo Drive is long and needs at least three speed humps. Sadly, while trying to take my dog for a peaceful walk, a speedster came along. There were monkeys playing and one baby ventured into the road and was hit by the car which never even stopped or slowed down.

It was heartbreaking seeing the mother of the baby monkey trying to pick her dead baby up. It is strange when driving in Oslo Beach or Marburg residential areas there are speed humps every few metres, but nothing gets done in the Uvongo area.
