Family warns motorists after stoning
By Odette Ismail
A family of Somerset West warned motorists that one of the high-risk routes namely the N2 was still a danger zone. This is after the introduction of more metro police, traffic officers and police on namely the N2 and other danger zones last week Thursday. According to IOL Elizabeth Erasmus, her husband, Andries Brink and two children drove on the N2 on Saturday night between the R300 and Somerset West when they saw a man walking on the Khayelitsha road, close to Kuils River. Erasmus said the man pretended to walk away but turned back and threw a stone towards their vehicle. The family tried not to panic and Brink steered the car while lifting his harm and protecting his face with his jacket. The family was not injured, but the stone hit the front and back windows as well as hitting both side windows. The family then went to Somerset West police station, reported it but left unhappy. According to the family, an officer was not helpful enough. Apparently the police officer said he did not understand what was expected of him to do but would take their details for insurance purposes. Police spokesperson for Cape Town’s Eastern Metropole, Randall Stoffels said no other stone throwing incidents were reported there besides this one since Thursday.
