DRIVING along Harare Drive from Rolfe Valley towards Enterprise Road is extremely dangerous! I will tell you what happened to me.
The time was about 9.55pm recently and there was no power in Glen Lorne, meaning the lights on Enterprise Road were out.
A stretch at th
e intersection of Enterprise Road and Harare Drive with no halt sign or white lines looks like a straight road and I overshot it, only to suddenly realise what had happened as I went over humps meant to protect school children.
I stopped, shaking like a leaf and thanked God that there was no traffic travelling along the road that night.
I survived by the grace of God.
Several drivers who do not know the area well have gone through this experience.
I have been using the Enterprise Road since 1979 and at this intersection I have witnessed many accidents.
Surely it wouldn’t cost much to put up visible stop signs and re-paint the white lines clearly. The responsible authorities should spare a thought for the valuable lives they will save.
We pay rates and council should meet part of its bargain by giving us service that tallies with what we pay.
