KZN Youth Day roads bloodbath

HAPPINESS FOR SOME: ...horror for others. While Youth Day was being celebrated the road-death toll in KZN was climbing to 53. Image: SAPA


Monroe shock-absorbers and the Adrenalin Specialised Driving Academy have united to create a series of part-sponsored advanced driving courses for younger drivers to cut the road death toll.

Durban - At least 53 people died on kwaZulu-Natal roads over the Youth Day / Fathers' Day weekend

Provincial transport MEC Willies Mchunu said the province had 42 reported collisions between Friday evening and Tuesday morning (June 14-18 2013).


The worst involved three vehicles which collided and burned on the N2 near Park Rynie on the KZN South Coast on Friday.

"I am deeply disappointed that so many people lost their lives on provincial roads," Mchunu said. "We condemn those drivers who disregard the rule of law and who continue to cause unnecessary accidents."

Reports indicated all the accidents could have been avoided, he said.

Wheels24 asks: There are "necessary" accidents, MEC?  Perhaps KZN traffic cops should get mobile and haul in "those who disregard the rule of law" instead of hiding in the bushes along the N2?
