Motorists must stop targeting pedestrians

THE Joburg CBD is looking rather spiffy in anticipation of Rea Vaya. Several vital intersections have nicely painted zebra crossings, which unfortunately drivers have decided are pedestrian target areas.

Please, could motorists respect the fact that the number of pedestrians is going to increase as more people use the BRT? And please, could they stop aiming at us when we utilise the pedestrian crossings?

The JMPD should extend law enforcement to include the BRT zones. Several motorists need a fine or two to finally understand that pedestrians share the roads.

The JMPD should also finally make good on its threat to tow away any illegally parked vehicles that block lanes.

Councillor Ann Barnes, DA Joburg
