Call for harsher road laws

2008-03-11 00:00

KwaZulu-Natal MEC for Transport and Community Safety Liaison, Bheki Cele, has called for harsher laws on South African roads. Speaking at the Easter Road Safety Plan Campaign Launch in Cato Ridge, Cele said the death of 30 people in a space of three hours on KZN roads last Monday made manifest the urgency to implement harsher laws. "Laws are too soft for the carnage on the roads," he said.

"We are a dying nation. Road accidents kill economically active people, people who have just graduated … and have bought new cars or people on public transport going to work." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
