Accident stats cleared

Peter Stenslunde, the Constantia Residents’ and Ratepayers’ Association (CRRA) committee member responsible for traffic, roads and Stormwater and marketing said the accident stats mentioned in the article (“Danger Drive,” Bulletin July 21) were received from Wynberg SAPS.

He also sent pictures he took of the crash on Monday July 18. “Notice no traffic department had pitched. I doubt they were called,” he said.

He said only a SAPS case number was needed for insurance purposes, so the traffic department would not necessarily have been at every accident scene. This could account for the discrepancy in the SAPS and City accident statistics.
