In “Traffic woes”, (People’s Post, 3 April) Alan Jackson was incorrectly quoted as saying that “although most of the community members agree on the implementation of speed humps and other traffic calming measures, he would like to warn that those are dangerous measures” on busy roads. He was quoted as saying the community needs is greater traffic officer visibility and that implementing humps would result in a rise in accidents.

His correct response was that there is a need for far greater Law Enforcement. He adds that in order for speed humps to be implemented in suburban streets, the people in those streets need to be consulted, and many residents are not in favour of speed humps. He said that speed humps do not resolve the problem as they simply serve to move traffic into other roads. He believes Capetonians have become serial offenders and no amount of traffic calming measures will resolve this matter.
