  1. R 1.49 Bakwena Post Office on total road closure?
  2. For starters nobody is enforcing the laws of the road. Friends were hit by a car busy overtaking into the yellow lane. The drivers driver license expired and the license for his car expired. The car's tyres are smooth and the shocks should have been replaced 200 000 km ago. In the case that the authorities did their jobs and applied the law this car would not have been on the road and the driver will not use the emergency lane for overtaking. If officials were not corrupt the thousand of drivers driving with fake drivers licenses and without a license wouldbe much less. Do you ever see thes things checked at the same ratio at which speed traps are held? See the article below. More than 50 000 motorists in the Western Cape are driving with expired driver's licences, the provincial Transport Department has revealed, prompting threats of a crackdown by law enforcement and insurance companies. The provincial traffic department's manager of traffic administration, Catherina Chesworth, said the number of invalid licences was likely to grow because motorists were unhappy about standing in long queues at traffic centres, while others just had an "I don't care" attitude. The outstanding renewals, which stood at 52 825 on Saturday, date back to October and could spiral in the next few months if the trend continued, she warned.

Of the 81 462 licences that were due for renewal in February and the first half of March, 37 000 motorists had so far failed to renew theirs. In January, 9 279 of the 25 863 motorists that were due for a licence renewal had failed to do so. In addition, more than 6 000 drivers had not renewed their licences between October and December. "The same attitude that we had with the conversion of driver's licences from the ID to the credit-card-type licences is what we are experiencing with renewals now. People don't seem to care and don't realise the importance of renewing them. "They'll probably start worrying when they are threatened with law enforcement again. "But we also need to be honest about the situation at our traffic centres. People really don't want to stand in long queues just to renew a licence. This is a very serious situation we are facing," she said. 'People really don't want to stand in long queues'Though the city was looking at shortening queueing times at traffic centres by opening a dedicated centre that would deal only with licence renewals, it has promised to crack down on defaulting motorists in the meantime. Cape Town traffic spokesperson Searle Johannes said the city could not rule out arrests and hefty fines. "It is a legal requirement to have a valid driver's licence at all times. You can be arrested and prosecuted if you don't have a valid licence. It's a very serious matter... we can even prohibit you from driving further if you transgress traffic laws," he said. Johannes said the city's traffic operations for the Easter weekend would also be targeting motorists without licences. Brian Martin, the ombudsman for short-term insurance, said failure to renew a driver's licence could have serious implications and could compromise insurance claims. "Most insurance policies require a driver to be in possession of a valid driver's licence. Failure to have this could compromise your claim," he said.

  6. Voertsek wat is dit met jou poepoog en CSA
  7. Maybe you should go to gym and bulk up so you can have enough power in the legs to start the thing up.
  8. I think the person doing the kicking is gay and was hoping on some rough handling by an older good looking cyclist.
  9. CSA is the recognised abreviation for Cricket South Africa. I am thus not surprised that they did not announce a track team.
