Western Cape Transport MEC Robin Carlisle says the only way to bring about a major reduction in road fatalities is to savagely punish the perpetrators of the carnage on South Africa’s roads.
Carlisle made the remarks in reaction to a recent suggestion by Transport Minister Sibusiso Ndebele that the speed limit of highways be reduced.
Carlisle says the killers on the country’s roads are getting off scot-free, or with just a laughable fine. He says this cannot be allowed to continue.
