We need support of commuters to say no more reckless taxi drivers, urges Vadi

3 March 2017 8:03 AM
MEC Ismail Vadi says there mus be a massive campaign to ensure taxi drivers obey the law to combat unnecessary road accidents.

Gauteng MEC of Transport Ismail Vadi says there needs to be a massive community campaign where commuters, civil society and government stand together against taxi operators and drivers who do not obey road and traffic laws.

Yesterday nine people died and several were injured when a taxi driver lost control and the vehicle overturned on the R82 in Walkerville.

Vadi says he cannot prejudge whether the accident was caused by driver recklessness, but says they receive reports of fatal taxi crashes almost every week.

We need to reach a point where we can hold both taxi driver and taxi operator to account.

Ismail Vadi, Gauteng Transport and Roads MEC

We can't have a traffic officer 24 hours on every route where taxis operate.
