It is just after 05:00 in a cold, windy and rainy Cape Town when the packed train pulls onto platform three. Commuters rush into the already full train and try to find a place to stand, or if they are lucky, to sit. Others hang out of the open door. The only thing that is important to these commuters, is to get a space on the train with the hope that they will make it to work on time.

It’s about more than money … it’s about making a difference
By Annalise Kempen

One of the very sad consequences of every holiday season is the high number of vehicle crashes happening on our roads - not only resulting in people losing loved ones, but also leaving many drivers and passengers seriously injured or even disabled. Despite these tragedies, we tend to forget about the victims or to ask whether anyone would be there to support them on their road to recovery, help to cover their future medical expenses, or compensate for their loss of income.

Ever considered your health and fitness to be a “road hazard”?
Compiled by Annalise Kempen

A lot is being said and written about vehicle fitness and road-worthiness, but what about your own fitness to drive a vehicle? Are you mentally and physically up for the challenge of driving in rush-hour traffic amidst lunatics, slogs, inexperienced and even illegal drivers? If you are a long-distance driver who has to concentrate for hours on end or an emergency worker who has no choice but to rush to scenes, the impact on your health may be even worse.

In South Africa, fatalities due to vehicle crashes are a major contributor to unnatural deaths impacting negatively on our economic development and growth. The government and other road safety role-players are of the opinion that the introduction of a demerit point system will have a positive impact on the carnage on our roads. During the launch of Transport Month in Gauteng in October 2019, Pres Cyril Ramaphosa said: “AARTO is one of the interventions to forge a more effective and efficient link between enforcement and a transparent and fair adjudication process. The Act promotes responsible behaviour on our roads through the creation of a demerit system, which introduces meaningful consequences for reckless, negligent and inconsiderate conduct” (Lindwa, 2019).

We salute Brig Mauritz "Happy" Schutte who was born on 4 September 1951, but was called for higher duties to be with his Lord and Saviour, our God Almighty on 9 October 2019, succumbing to the illness of cancer.
There is talk of forcing pension onto members at the age of 55, with no talk of any adjustments for the Public Service Act employees who can still build pension up to the age of 65.
