The streets of Kempville have now become an illegal temporary scrapyard. When driving into Kempville one is greeted with vehicles that are standing around and obstructing traffic.
Business owners have now resorted to fixing these vehicles in the streets as they don’t have ample space in their workshops. The root of the problem occurs when property is let out to open a mechanical workshop and there isn’t sufficient space for the business’ daily activities to be run. Automatically these business owners resort to moving their workshops onto the public pavements and the roads as well. Traffic flow is obstructed. Motorists have to drive in between these mechanics going about their daily activities in the streets. The vehicles are left standing and parts are left lying around and are not removed even at the end of the day.
Due to the reconstruction of our traffic department, the vehicles are unable to be removed as there isn’t an impound station at which to leave the vehicles. There is now a backlog list of vehicles standing on the public roads and on pavements. Once the new traffic department is complete all vehicles left abandoned on a public road will be removed and impounded. The public needs to be aware of the traffic law and realize that the public roads should be used for its main purposes and not be misused. The violation of the law as per Reg. 320 of the Road Legislation Act will be applied and enforced on any member of the public that refrain from doing so.
