Harare Drivers Using Cycle Lanes

The photos below were taken at 0730hrs on Simon Mazorodze Road.

This is opposite Lyons, about two hundred meters from Star FM, and in full view of ZRP Traffic Police.

On the left, you can clearly see what is a cycle lane. Drivers are using that from the opposite direction, and cutting across the traffic lane.



This is just a small part of what is happening on Harare’s roads everyday, which have become an absolute menace.

We will not cross our fingers, but Zimbabwe Republic Police should either heavily fine each and every driver doing this, or impound the vehicles.

Too often we blame traffic problems and bad driving on the lack of a reliable police presence on our roads.

The fact is that people would not “get away with it” if they didn’t do it in the first place.

The problem is not the police, the problem is the actual impatient, inconsiderate drivers blatantly breaking the traffic laws.

I hope they start getting arrested, or in the least being publicly shamed.

    Breaking the law is breaking the law, let me put that out there 1st. Traffic volume has increased to a level which the roads cannot cope. Commuter operator started this thing of using cycle lanes to create an extra lane and people slowly went along with it. When you are free during morning rush hour along Chiremba Rd between RG mugabe Rd and Glenara have a look at what goes on.
