Obey rules

Trevor Cleghorn, Bergvliet

I refer to the letter “A ‘fine’ cheek if you don’t stop” (Bulletin, July 7) from Vard Aman, regarding the traffic ticket that was issued for not coming to a stop behind the white line at a stop street.

It was very pleasing to find that there are traffic police patrolling roads in the southern suburbs.

The problem is that as there are not sufficient traffic police in the southern suburbs, motorists are taking advantage of this and not sticking to the laws.

Stop streets are now being treated as yield signs and look in your mirror when you go through an amber robot and you will see two to three vehicles behind you going through the red light.

We all know what is right and what is wrong and what we learnt when we did our driver’s licence test.

Vard Aman has pleaded guilty but is complaining about the fine of R 1500.

The answer is very simple. Obey the rules of the road and you will not get fined. Well done to the traffic department.
