    Most of Joburg’s traffic problems are caused by drivers ignoring the most basic of traffic laws.

    Traffic in S.A. will only improve when the drivers start respecting the traffic laws and the cops start enforcing the safety laws.

    While speed is a problem, far too much emphasis is placed on the money making ‘business’ of speed traps and mass vehicle roadblocks, rather than looking at training and the safety aspects of law enforcement.

    It would be interesting to see the statistics of the number of vehicle deaths versus the number of seatbelt wearers, but as long as the people who are supposed to be setting the example,i.e. the Metro Cops themselves continue to flout this law, will Joe Public follow the law or the example?

    Traffic officers need to be in cars, or on bikes, patrolling and stopping more of the moving violations seen every day.
