Weekend Free for All on Eastern Cape Roads

Weekend driving on Eastern Cape roads is a free for all as provincial
traffic cops refuse to work any longer due to non-payment of overtime.

This news was conveyed to a Legislature Transport Portfolio oversight
meeting at the Provincial Traffic offices in Port Elizabeth on THursday
2 September 2010.

Furthermore, a legislature question regarding when overtime payments
will be done, asked by myself in July to the MEC for Transport, Ghishma
Barry, remains unanswered.

The outstanding overtime owed to some officers goes back as far as
December 2009.

The lack of visible policing on our roads over weekends will put the
lives of all motorists in extra danger. Weekends will now be
a field-day for drunk drivers, speedsters and lawbreakers to flout
traffic laws.

All motorists are entitled to be protected with safety while using our
roads and their safety must not be at risk due to the non-attendance of
traffic officers.

The MEC must be squarely to blame for accidents committed on weekends
when traffic policing could have avoided such incidents.

I will be raising this issue as a matter of urgency with the Transport
Portfolio Committee at its meeting on Wednesday, 8 September asking for
urgent intervention to pay these officers so that weekend policing can
resume on our provincial roads.
