WHY is everyone so surprised every time there is a major accident and people are killed? With all the unroadworthy vehicles as a result of unskilled mechanics on one hand and the dishonest ones on the other, and all the reckless driving, accidents are just waiting to happen. The next major one I predict will most likely happen down Old Howick Road or Sweetwaters Road. On two occasions on these roads, I had to squeeze up against the left kerb to avoid a speeding vehicle that encroached on my side of the road.
Those in charge of enforcing the law must not think they are immune to deadly accidents. It could be one of them or a member of their family who face a head-on collision against a vehicle moving in excess of 100 km/h leaving no room at all to manoeuvre.
We desperately need traffic cops patrolling the roads.
