The Gauteng MEC of police, Faith Mazibuko shared a picture on her twitter account, showing the South Africans, one of the common things that usually happen on the road. Drivers take risks with their lives, trying to act smart on the road. This is really concerning, and the SAPS and traffic officers, have to do something urgently, to prohibit such minor car accidents from happening.
It shows that it is easy for people to lose their lives, or sustain injuries on the road. Drivers take advantage of their driving skills, and think they can do everything they want on the road. Some people do not want to follow the law, and they do as they please.
A lot of people are succumbing to fatal car accidents reported on a daily basis. Committing a minor mistake can cost many people their lives. Not only does the drive put its life in danger, but the lives of everyone on the road.
Many unlawful drive acts conducted by drivers, usually occur at night, as they are aware that they cannot be easily identified, and many police officers are not on duty at night. This proves that it is not safe to drive and travel at night, people are doing as they please on the road, and you might be unlucky and be involved in an accident.
It is alleged that this driver was trying to evade the roadblock and the car went straight into a mini hole, and it has difficulties being taken out. It needs to be towed out and people are not cheerful about what this drive has done. Cars are machines, they can get broken and damaged, if they are permitted to travel off the roads. There is a reason why tar roads are orchestrated, to allow cars to safely take on their journeys.
Roadblocks might get tiring sometimes, people have to spend a lot of time on the road, which frustrates most drivers. It is painful to spend more anticipated hours on the road. Passengers and drives get tired of sitting down and having their vehicles moving slowly, depending on the longevity of the roadblock.
There are plenty of reasons that can cause roadblocks. Some commence when there is a search operation happening on the road. Cars are stopped by SAPS and other law enforcement, and have a search and see what they can find. This happens sometimes, when there is a tip.
Car accidents also cause roadblocks, the scene needs to be attended by the SAPS and take statements, and see what might have caused the accident. Paramedics and ambulances need to rush to the accident scene and take those who are dead and injured to the right place. All this requires time, thus some drivers are forced to change the roads they are using, or wait for this prolonged time until they are given a green light to proceed with their journeys. During times such as the festive and Easter season, there are many people travelling to their homes. A lot of traffic is experienced, this is one of the times when drivers try to evade the roadblocks. They drive off the road, and this is deadly.
On the sides of the roads, it is not safe for a car, because the road is not smooth and clear. Cars can get tire punctures, because of materials and other substances thrown on the side of the road. Unfortunately this driver took this car into a mini hole unexpectedly. It is pivotal that rules and signs of the roads are always followed by drivers and passengers.
Surely it is not the first time such an act is experienced, people continued sharing their experience in the comment section. This is really uncalled for.
