GEORGE NEWS FLASH - Gerd Fros, a 72-year-old Oudtshoorn resident who went to spend a peaceful day of angling in Wilderness on Thursday 27 November, had his trip ruined when he was given a R1 500 fine for driving in the wrong direction in Leila's Lane, which became a one-way street last week.
The enraged Fros said he was totally caught by surprise.
Upon investigation it turns out that many other Wilderness residents were also caught in a similar fashion. Now the Wilderness Ratepayers Association is demanding to know why this road in the heart of their town was made a one way.
Harold Basson, Director of the George Municipal Civil Engineering Services Department has advised that the primary reason for the change of Leila's Lane to a one-way, was to improve the traffic flow in the central business district of Wilderness.
