As the Easter weekend approaches, the IFP
calls for an increased police presence on the country's roads,
but specifically the notorious Moloto Road, which runs
from Mpumalanga to Pretoria and is used by thousands of people
"How many more lives have to be lost before
the government takes decisive action to put an end to the
carnage once and for all?" asked IFP spokesperson on Transport,
Mr Petros Sithole.
"We need visible policing and law enforcement
to address the unfit public transport vehicles and dangerous
driver behaviour on our roads. Moloto Road has become a place of
death - many people have lost their lives there"
The IFP also calls for the speedy
implementation of the much-delayed Moloto Rail Corridor.
"We continue to call for a lifetime ban for
drunk drivers, by making sure that drunk drivers' licences are
revoked and never renewed. Nor should they be allowed to apply
for permits to drive on the roads" said Sithole
