Respect on the roads

Floyd Robinson, Nasinu | Tuesday, September 12, 2017
Having travelled on the Kings highway last weekend, I noticed two issues of concern which authorities may want to take note of.

Firstly, the frequent speeding of vehicles even in residential areas display lack of respect for speed limits thereby increasing risks to pedestrians and passengers in other vehicles.

Secondly, the stacking of sugarcane on trucks is an issue. One noted that sugarcane sticking out of the truck at least 30 centimetres on either side of the vehicle.

Vehicles attempting to overtake the cane trucks struggled to get a clear view of oncoming traffic and struggled a bit before overtaking. One hopes that these observations are noted by respective authorities in the roads but more importantly,

drivers ought to exercise more respect for their lives as well as the lives of others either on the roads or pedestrians.
