    It is because the drivers drive without care and traffic control is not visible. The solid white line means nothing to someone driving without a license. I saw it with my own eyes. It creates a lot of tension when driving there, you never know if the guy behind you can make a sound judgement when passing by. 14 people dead in 3 days = road tension.

    The Mpumalanga local government is only good at giving statistics gathered by other institutions when needed. They fail however to make critical decisions that will make the lives of the people living there better. In fact it is non existent ------ THEY ALL SIT ON THEIR BACKS AND WATCH EVERYTHING FALL APPART. They are leaving behing quite a legacy, well done ANC.
