Garth Van Zyl, Owner of Medicare EMR has started a petition. A recent accident on the R45 coming into Franschhoek which instantly killed 2 locals and left a 3rd in a critical condition fighting for his life, has yet once again brought to light an on going issue experienced by road users in Franschhoek.
"I lost my partner and friend four years ago on this road, we want to use this recent incident to help get the support we need to get some sort of safety features implemented on this stretch of road coming into Franschhoek." says Garth.
The idea is to get "High Accident Zone" boards put up as well as those "Ripples" on the road surface to create awareness to road users to be aware of other roads users and tourists that there are vehicles regularly turning off to various wine estates in the area. Most of the time these people are new to the area and aren't always 100% sure of their destinations and respective turn off's.
Since the petition has started, it has been discussed on the Voice of the Cape Radio station. Unfortunately, there have been more deaths on the road since. SAPS has since stepped in, increasing Police Presence on the road. Please support the petition in the hope of saving more lives in the area.
