DA: KZN roads invaded by non-roadworthy vehicles

2012-11-15 00:00

KWAZULU-NATAL’S roads are being invaded by public transport vehicles that are not roadworthy, said Democratic Alliance provincial spokesperson Radley Keys.

This follows an accident on Tuesday in which an SA Roadlink bus ploughed into a truck.

Keys said while the DA welcomed the government’s road safety programmes, the problem of unsafe public transportation was not limited to the holiday period.

He said consistent surveillance was needed throughout the year and the Transport Department must show it has the political will to do so.

Another Roadlink bus broke down at the Chatterton Road traffic circle yesterday.

Transport Department spokesperson Kwanele Ncalane said officers would not be allowed to take leave during the festive season.
