AFTER two days of trying through the NMBM website, phone book and call centres to get hold of the NMBM person who is responsible for synchronising the Cape Road traffic lights, I eventually gave up and resorted to the only option left, the newspaper.
This person obviously does not travel down Cape Road from the Sunridge Park freeway interchange to William Moffett between 7am and 8am because I am convinced he or she would do something about the flow of traffic. The traffic department also does not seem to believe that this falls under its jurisdiction, that thousands of motorists are delayed every work day.
One thing the world needs now, without much cost, is to increase productivity to get out of the financial mess it is in. The one thing we can do to make our city function better without much effort is to reduce queues wherever they exist. Sitting in traffic queues or public service queues is a total waste of energy, time and money that could rather be used to build us up rather than break us down.
Come on citizens, we need to pull together – small efforts at doing our jobs well, or innovatively, can transform us astronomically.
