Letters | Msunduzi pulled the wool over our eyes regarding traffic lights

Traffic lights in the northern areas are dysfunctional and motorists do not adhere to the four-way-stop rule. Many mini-bus taxis are fitted with an orange emergency light which is switched on and the drivers then disregard the stop.

LETTER:


Traffic lights in the northern areas are dysfunctional and motorists do not adhere to the four-way-stop rule. Many mini-bus taxis are fitted with an orange emergency light which is switched on and the drivers then disregard the stop as they say they “have right of way”.

The municipality said that it is mindful of the malfunctioning traffic lights and the matter is to be sorted out in a few weeks. Msunduzi’s spokesperson failed to be frank and convey to motorists that the municipality didn’t renew its contract with the service provider timeously.

This lack of forward planning must be credited to incompetence due to Msunduzi’s cadre deployment practice. My respect goes to the traffic officer I bumped into who responded embarrassingly to my inquiry regarding the traffic lights. Msunduzi pulled the proverbial wool over our eyes.
