Bill plays traffic officer for a day

Determined to slow down the traffic at Rand Aid’s Tarentaal retirement village is the chairman of the residents’ committee, Bill Toseland, who spent part of Monday, April 6, monitoring the traffic. Bill made himself comfortable near the stop sign outside the village office, where a pedestrian crossing is situated. “Too many residents and visitors don’t obey the road rules within the village and Bill is afraid that there will be an accident one day, if motorists don’t slow down and heed traffic signs, such as this stop sign which is very often ignored,” says Tammy Neilson, the village manager. She adds that Bill used the opportunity to communicate with residents about the importance of the village’s speed limits and various traffic signs.
