As another year comes to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every resident of the Overstrand Municipality, all the stakeholders, businesses and organisations for the continued spirit of working together.

While we’ve had many achievements during the year, we also identified many obstacles which we aim to overcome during 2019.

On behalf of the Councillors and staff of the Overstrand Municipality, I wish you and your families a safe, peaceful and joyful Christmas and a Happy and Successful 2019.

Warm regards,
Ald Dudley Coetzee

Overstrand Municipality’s Traffic officials joined the Western Cape Department of Transport and Public Works (DTPW), the Theewaterskloof and Cape Agulhas municipalities, the South African Police Service Overberg Cluster, and all relevant emergency and disaster management services to launch the regional integrated traffic operational plan for the festive season in Caledon on 11 December 2018.

The launch is part of the broader Overberg District Safety Plan (DSP). The DSP is an integrated enforcement, education, engineering and evaluation plan that incorporates to all the elements that can contribute to road safety in the Caledon Traffic Centre operational area. The DSP aims to reduce overall fatalities by 33%, and child fatalities by 50%, by 2020.

This year’s traffic plan was applauded by the Mayor of Theewaterskloof, Christelle Vosloo, when she emphasised the importance of safer, booze-free roads for all road users.

Mayor Vosloo said joint traffic law enforcement operations between the DSP partners have yielded good results. “Random Breath Testing (RBT) operations at identified hotspots continue to catch motorists by surprise.”

Mayor Dudley Coetzee and fellow councillors Charmaine Resandt, Fanie Krige and Grant Cohen greeted drivers and their passengers by shaking hands and exchanging smiles during a ‘Welcome Roadblock’ in Hangklip-Kleinmond earlier today.

He wished all the holidaymakers a safe and enjoyable holiday in our area.

Also there to welcome tourists visiting the Overstrand were Traffic and Law Enforcement officers, SAPS, Hangklip-Kleinmond tourism office and Cape Nature.

A special appeal is made to motorists to adhere to the following basics:

  • Never drink and drive. If you intend to consume alcohol, make alternative arrangements so that you will not have to get behind the wheel.
  • Always make sure you and your passengers are buckled up.
  • Always adhere to the speed limit - driving too fast will result in a hefty fine, but driving too slow can be hazardous too.
  • Maintain a safe following distance and check your blind spot before changing lanes.
  • Don’t text and drive: #ItCanWait!
