The R334 road between Uitenhage and Motherwell has become a high risk road known for hi-jackings and it has hot spot areas for robberies, rape and even murder.

Therefore the Uitenhage CPF with their mission to “Stand together against crime” adhere to the need to have signs erected, warning the public and road-users about the danger.

The CPF sourced Paul Müller from Star Cabs to sponsor these sign boards.

“It is especially dangerous at the T-junction area where the Amanzi road links with the R334. Road-users have to be mindful and are requested to take extra precaution there,” said Pat Unsworth, chairperson of the Uitenhage Community Policing Forum (CPF).

“The message of the sign is ‘absolutely no stopping’. When a sign entails a circle it is an order. If it entails a triangle it gives you a choice. These boards show the circle so you have no choice. Please do not stop where these signs have been erected.”

The CPF work in co-operation with the Uitenhage police, which on a regular basis conducts road blocks on the R334.
