Will this sign stand the test of time

REPLACED: New stop signs are being erected in Eden Park after the theft of a number of these type of signs.

IT is a sad state of affairs when community members choose to steal stop signs which is there to ensure the safety of road users and pedestrians.

Travelling around Eden Park, one is forced to notice that all the stop signs have been stolen (completely removed) and that even most of the street names and poles do not exist anymore.

All of these have been dug out and most probably sold as scrap metal.

On September 12, EMM dispatched workers to erect new signs in Eden Park and surprisingly, these where still there on September 15. Normally the signs are gone a day or two after it was replaced.

“I just wonder why people here do what they are doing? The last time we erected stop signs here they were stolen as we moved from one street to the next. When we drove out after completing our task, we noticed that where we started, the signs were missing,” said an EMM workman who wishes to remain anonymous.
