CLAREMONT: PLEA TO CURB SPEEDING, ILLEGAL PARKING

Tow trucks raise ire ASTRID FEBRUARIE @FebAstrid

R

esidents and the local ward councillor are calling on Law Enforcement to stop tow truck drivers from parking their vehicles illegally on a traffic island in Claremont. Ward councillor Ian Iversen says the tow truck drivers have virtually “taken over” the traffic island on the corners of Bowwood Drive and Main Road. “They have been requested to move, but respond by swearing and aggression. They are parking illegally and if they are not stopped it will set a precedent for other people to park there as well,” says Iversen. He called on the City of Cape Town’s traffic department to solve the matter. “The traffic department responded by sending out traffic officers who are regularly patrolling the area to ensure that no one parks on the traffic island,” he says. Iversen says there were talks about putting up a “No Parking” sign to deter the two truck drivers or anyone from parking on the island or anywhere illegally, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet. “Since the traffic department has stepped in there has been far fewer tow truck drivers parking their vehicles there, which is a good sign that they are adhering to the rules of the road,” he says. A resident, who spoke to the People’s Post on condition of anonymity, says she has seen tow truck drivers speeding down Main Road and other parts of Claremont. “Many of them are inconsiderate and speed down the road without a care in the world. Main Road is very busy and they could easily knock someone as there are many pedestrians here,” she says. “I know that their job entails them to wait until they are called out to an accident scene, but it would be great if there was a space allocated to them where they can park their big vehicles without disturbing other motorists,” she adds.

A manager of a southern suburbs tow truck company, who does not want to be identified, says they have strict regulations about parking their heavy duty vehicles. “We have implemented a strict rule that none of our drivers may park on the side of the road, on a pavement or on a traffic island,” she says. “Our employees must park their vehicles on our premises and only when they are called out are they allowed to leave the property.” While the public is quick to judge tow truck drivers “not all of them disobey the

laws of the road”. She says it is important for people to speak up when they see someone breaking the law. Richard Bosman, of the City of Cape Town’s safety and security department, says the City’s traffic services department has received complaints and has taken action to address the issue. “Residents have reported tow trucks are parked on the island and expressed concern this could damage the paving,” he says. Bosman says it is illegal for tow truck drivers or anyone to park on the traffic island

and that they have been charged on numerous occasions in this regard. “We have had several follow-up visits to the area and they were found to be parked legally, but not on the island. The tow truck drivers can park anywhere where it is legal for motorists to park,” he adds. Bosman says City traffic officers will continue to monitor the situation, but the public is encouraged to report infringements to Law Enforcement.

ave your say on the City of Cape Town’s new draft Municipal Planning Bylaw. The proposed draft suggests changes to the property, planning and development environment in Cape Town. It also proposes a tougher approach to enforcement of land use, building and development regulations and will have an impact on the City’s own human settlements programmes. The proposed draft makes provision for emergency housing needs resulting from disasters such as fires and floods. Belinda Walker, the City’s acting Mayco member for Economic, Environmental and Spatial Planning, says: “The planning environment has been known to be legislatively fragmented. This has led to the duplication of procedures not conducive to the enabling environment for opportunity and growth that we want to create in partnership with the private sector and the broader members of the public,” says Walker. Now that the Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Act (Spluma) and the Land Use Planning Act have been adopted, she says, the City is leading the way in “ensuring that our municipal planning aligns with the new national and provisional planning legislation”. Walker says there have been a number of judgments which have been helpful in clarifying the roles of provincial and municipal authorities in planning decisions. “We want to streamline procedures and minimise red tape and we are looking at ways to speed up applications while at the same time ensuring that everyone has a reasonable opportunity to influence the process.” The City considers this project to be a critical legislative intervention as it will determine the decision-making framework for future municipal planning, as well as set the required procedures to apply for planning approvals. The public is therefore encouraged to participate at this early stage. This draft bylaw will give effect to the mu-

CRIME: POLICE AND WATCH ERODE CRIME

Hard work does pay off

ASTRID FEBRUARIE @FebAstrid

T

here has been a significant reduction of crime due to the efforts of Pinelands police and the Pinelands Neighbourhood Watch. This is according to warrant officer Tando Sonjica of Pinelands police who confirmed that there has been a decrease in crime over the last month. “Police and the neighbourhood watch have increased their patrols, especially along Ringwood Drive where one house break-in was reported in April. “Ringwood Drive is a long road that stretches over almost the full length of Pinelands and the crimes reported there occurred mostly during the day,” she says. Although there is no indication of a syndicate operating in the area, there have been arrests, Sonjica added. She says through ongoing awareness through the neighbourhood watch meetings, emails and through the monthly report backs residents have been alerted about the house robberies. “We always inform residents about the importance of being vigilant by providing them with safety tips,” she says. Chairperson of the Pinelands Neighbourhood Watch, Peter Hofmann, says there has been a significant reduction in crime over the past few years, with the arrests over the last two weeks.

“We do warn residents about the house break-ins, but we are not able to confirm that a syndicate is operating in the area,” he says. Hofmann says residents are always advised to keep their sliding doors closed as it can offer easy access if they are not properly secured. Sonjica says police also urged residents not leave keys in a gate or door, curtains should be closed after dark to prevent criminals from observing the activities inside the house and to never leave contractors unattended in their homes. Residents are advised to not leave their garage, front or back door open or partially open even if they are at home, as it serves as an invitation to criminals. “Always be observant when leaving or arriving at your residence for suspicious per-

father and son where held up by four gunmen in their Balintore Road home last week. Rondebosch police are urging residents to be more cautious following this incident of house robbery. The father and son arrived home on Thursday 8 May at 21:50 when they were approached by four armed men in their garage. Warrant officer Lyndon Sisam, of Rondebosch police, says the suspects were wearing balaclavas. “They took the man and his son into the house and locked them in the bathroom and ransacked the house,” he says. The suspects stole jewellery, flat screen TVs, laptops, four cellphones, an iPod and a set of car keys. Sisam says the suspects fled the scene in a white bakkie. No shots were fired and no one was injured. “We encourage residents to ensure that all house security devices are operational and that the panic buttons are close at hand. “When coming home, be wary of people loitering near your home,” he says. Sisam says the other area of concern is between Park Road off Milner Road, Sandown Road and Avenue de Mist Road. “Special undercover operations are in place in these areas, but the public is advised to please guard against becoming complacent and to be vigilant when arriving home,” Sisam says.

“We also want to warn students about the subway in Burg Road which is notorious for robberies,” he adds. Students are advised to use busy routes, well-lit walkways and to walk in a group when travelling on foot. “The subway at Burg Road is notorious for robberies between 07:00 and 10:00. “Avoid walking with iPods, talking on cellphones or displaying obvious valuables on your person,” Sisam urges. Students are also advised against asking strangers for directions. “ When you are suspicious about someone in or near the subway, trust your instinct and change your route,” he says. Shirley Aldum, manager of the Rondebosch Community Improvement District (RCID), says the times of the incidents in the RCID area has varied and no fixed time pattern has emerged. Aldum says the CID is “grateful” to the residents who regularly report suspicious people or vehicles and all queries are attended to. “We encourage residents to act on their ‘gut feel” and to phone the CID’s hub at any time,” she says. She says although crime incidents have decreased, regular crime alerts are sent out to residents. “We encourage all our residents to be more vigilant and to enforce their security ‘rules’ at all times. Security is only as good as your weakest link.” Sisam says residents and students who feel unsafe when walking or driving home can drive to or contact the police station and request an escort. The sector number is 082 378 9264 or 082 378 9289.

Cape’s beauty on show at marathon Top international competitors will challenge South Africa’s best long distance runners for over R1.2m in prize money at the annual Cape Town Marathon in September. The men’s and women’s winners will each bag R265 000, the silver medallists will receive R130 000 and the third-place finishers will earn R70 000. All the top 10 finishers will also take home significant cash prizes, as will the top five

in the 40 to 49, 50 to 59 and over-60 age groups. International runners such as Kenyan Dominic Kangor Kimwetich and Nigeria’s Serkalem Taye Guililat have already confirmed their participation. Besides the R1.2m to be divided amongst the top marathon runners, over R400 000 is set to be shared by top performers in the other races on the race weekend. The fastest finishers in the 11km and

21.1km Peace Trail Runs and Peace 10km Run will bag between R10 000 and R250. The trail runs, Peace Relay, Peace Fun Run and Peace Mile events will all take place on Saturday 20 September, while the Peace Run and marathon will take place on Sunday 21 September. The route will offer runners views of the city’s stunning natural and

cultural attractions, such as the 12 Apostles, the Atlantic Seaboard, Bo-Kaap and V For more information, a detailed breakdown of the prize money or to enter visit www.capetownmarathon.com.

Slave Route run a success T

he fourth annual Jive Slave Route Challenge set off with a bang on Sunday, as a miniature cannon blast sent over 5000 participants on their way in four different events. The challenge, of which People’s Post is the print media sponsor, saw walkers and runners of all ages and ability levels participate in a half marathon, 10km run, 5km fun run or 10km walk in the CBD. But unlike most road races, the Slave Route Challenge was about the Cape’s culture, history and community and not just personal achievement and exercise. The event took participants past some of the city’s most important historic landmarks and showed off it’s natural beauty from some of the best vantage points. The route passed through District Six, Bo-Kaap and other parts of the CBD, winding past the Iziko Slave Lodge, the Slave Tree Plaque and the Whipping Post. Several historic churches and mosques are also dotted along the route, while participants also ran through the Castle of Good Hope. All finishers received medals and all entrants received a coupon to visit the castle.

The race was hosted by Itheko Sport Athletic Club. The club saw a number of its runners finish on the podium. In the men’s open division of the half marathon Sibusiso Madikizela (Manoni Running Club) claimed gold in a time of 1:07:18, Nedbank Running Club’s Mthandazo Qhina finished second in 1:07:31 and Itheko’s JP Abrahams was third in 1:07:38. In the women’s open category Nedbank’s Bulelwa Simae was first in 1:24:07, Kate Mapham from Whalers Athletic Club was second in 1:24:35 and Itheko’s Nomvuyisi Seti was third in 1:24:41. In the 10km race, Pamela Moyikwa from K-way VOB finished first in 38:13, Itheko’s Khanya Mateyisi was second in 38:44 and Maties Athletic Club’s Ebeth Marais took third in 39:20. Peter Tsawayo of RCS Gugulethu won the men’s open division in 31:42, while CPUT Athletics Club’s Sibusiso Soldaka finished in 31:49 to claim second and Itheko’s Duane Fortuin was third in 31:52.

“What’s recycling glass got to do with watching TV?” Well every time we recycle glass we save energy.” “No ways!” “Yes, every time we recycle a glass bottle or jar, it saves power as it takes less energy to make new glass.” “You mean if we recycle glass we can watch more TV?”
