“Spitkops” should be seen to be working, right

I don’t understand why traffic cops should stand in the burning sun when operating speeding cameras.

Former Transport Minister Joe Maswanganyi prevented them from operating their cameras from under trees, saying they were hiding and trapping speeding motorists.

I believe that if something is wrong, it is wrong. Speeding on our roads causes many fatalities and fining those speeding prevents them from causing further harm.

The minister was actually saying speeding drivers should only reduce their speed when they see a traffic cop.

This implied they may speed when they are no cops around. Traffic cops must be allowed to do their jobs to curb lawlessness in whatever way possible.
