Step up and do something

2016-04-28 06:00

FOR some time now there has been a “stop and go” between Caribbean Estates and Wild Coast Sun as a big road upgrade is under way. The big picture is that this will be a good thing in the long run, unfortunately the safety of road users in the meantime does not seem to be a priority.

The Wild Coast Sun and Caribbean Estates have done their part by installing lighting on the road to increase visibility and safety. Despite this there have been no less than ten vehicles involved in rear end collisions on a stretch of road that has less than two accidents per year.To my knowledge nobody has been killed yet but it is only a matter of time before a child sitting in the back is killed or seriously injured.

Why has the municipality or road works contractor not stepped up and made an effort? It would not be so hard to set up temporary speed bumps for 200m approaching the stop and go, seeing that the people waving lights on the side of the road have proven ineffectual.

They are still far from completion which means many more accidents ahead. Please step up and do something about it.
