    And reopen on the 15th or 29th January.

    I believed that it will bring the accident rate down with atlease 10%

    It is a fact that most of the truck accident happend in these Month. Begin in October,November,Desember end in January.

    And ja we can work things out.

    As dit ‘n publieke vakansiedag (1 Januarie 2012) was en die spoedgrens is verlaag van 120km/u na 60km/u op ‘n openbare pad (N1) weens padwerke, maar geen padwerkers werk die dag nie en daar is geen gevaar soos o.a ‘n ry/stop of slaggate wat gevul moet word nie en die pad is gemerk met al sy strepe en daar sit ‘n verkeersbeampte agter ‘n boom met sy laser en vang mense vir spoed, wat is die spoedgrens wat dan gehandhaaf moet word? Is dit 60 km/u of 120 km/u? Daar is dan geen padwerkers in sig nie. Moet die 60 km/u bordjie dan nie verwyder word en normale spoed gehandhaaf word aangesien daar geen padwerkers is die hele dag en dit geen padgevaar inhou vir die motoriste nie? En indien die spoedgrens wel 60km/u sou wees daardie dag en motoriste het ‘n spoed gehandhaaf van 120km/u, wat sal die nagevolge wees, m.a.w watter oortreding sal geld?
