VIDEO : A pothole that will leave you dumbstruck

There is a devastating report that was issued by eNCA news regarding some potholes in Vaal´s Evaton West that will leave you dumbstruck.

This is because one of the potholes is even used by the kids as a dam to swim and play inside. The motorists are forced to drive next to the pothole, but it is a great danger if it is raining. The taxi operators have expressed concerns over the pothole which even looks like a water bank. These potholes are making it difficult for the commuters to be transported and dropped off near their places of residence as some of the taxi operators choose not to go past the big potholes.

The potholes damage the taxis and the taxi operators are not willing to endure such losses. A call is made to the government to fix the potholes so that the lives of motorists are not exposed to danger. South Africa is nearing a rainy season, and potholes are a great danger if they are not covered by the relevant authorities. The Ministry of Transport headed by Mr Fikile Mbalula needs to step up and ensure that the roads are safe.

It must not only apply in Gauteng but the rest of the country. The festive season is slowly approaching and it is known to be a season when a lot of people lose their lives on the roads. It is the responsibility of the government to ensure that the roads are fixed in order to help avoid accidents from taking place. It is sickening to note that the road in Evaton West was last fixed more than ten years back according to what a resident said. What will it take for the government to fix the roads in Evaton West? Is it bloodshed that will make the government open its eyes and see the need to fix the potholes?
