Negligent road users unstoppable

2016-01-28 06:00

I AM really concerned by the way some people drive on our roads, especially at night.

I have witnessed, not once but many times, where drivers just cross the red traffic lights at high speed. The traffic light in Umtwentweni is the one place I have seen mad drivers racing to cross a red traffic light without even checking if there is any car coming. I know many who will say we all do that for safety reasons.

It is really disturbing especially when you come to think of the lives that are lost on our road because of negligent drivers who do not follow rules.
