2000 people die on our roads each year

The R300 is an extremely dangerous road and the death toll has doubled in the past two years. Cape Town Roads suffer 2000 fatalities a year according to the Democratic Alliance

“A motorist was killed in a head on collision and a pedestrian was run over during the past weekend while authorities argued over what the actual death toll on the R300 was, whether it was dangerous road and who should take responsibility for safety on it,” says DA spokesperson on Transport, Robin Carlisle.

Provincial Transport, Community Safety, the City Council and SA National Roads Agency Limited all have various responsibilities for safety and road conditions in respect of the R300, the N1 and the N2 in the metropolitan area.

“Co-ordination between them is poor, as was graphically demonstrated during the stone throwing epidemic last year,” says Carlisle.
