On any given day I hate this section of our forum, so it is with great sadness in my heart that I have to come tell you guys of JC Van der Merwe.

A Venture taxi turned right in front of him and he hit him head on. He was riding a ZX10 and if they did not tell me that he got the bike 2 weeks ago, I would have no idea what bike it was. Sad part is that they have arrested the taxi driver and will be charging him with culpabale Homiside(Spelling) ONLY. let's hope they through the book at him!!!

I have taken contact numbers for one of his colleges and will be incantact with him in a few days. I have offered the support groups services and will try and organise some de-briefing for JC's co-workers. I will also try and get in contact with his family to see if they don't need anything.

What a way to start a day and ultamately a weekend!!!

Yes DTR, it was on the very same spot :-( That section of road is getting very scary, cause I've even had two near misses there. They look you square in the eye and turn infront of you :shock:

Sounds like that is a spot where people ned to be educated. 1st DTR's dad went down there (stupid cyclist), not this poor guy:-(. I'ts probaly not the busiest place in the world as I'm sure traffic to Midrand etc. is a lot worse, but it sonds like these people really don't know anything about safety on the road. And I don't mean just cagers and taxis but cyclists and pedestrians too. Maybe with the next banner day, do awareness there too.

I woke up that morning to the news bulletin and I went ICE ICE cold and I felt sick!! First thing that went through my head was that it's my boet :shock: Next thing was that he is on MY bike so if it's him it's my fault for lending him my ride.

Phoned and got his voicemail! Couple of seconds later he phoned me back and MAN OH MAN was I releaved!! As cruel as it may sound... I've never been so glad that someone else died (please don't read that wrong!)

My deepest thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by this senseless "accident".

Cronos I know you did nothing wrong but don't EVER do that again!

Isn't there may be a way for me to build awareness or get some legal whatever going at that section?, To try and prevent any further nightmares?

DTR - Maybe for the banner day this comming Friday(25/07/08), how about you and I go do a silent protest on this corner? Meet there at say 06:00, put up two banners and just hand out stickers to every one willing to listen?? You game??

Any one ells willing to stop and join us, feel free.

I will post this suggestion as well on the banner day thread.
