A dangerous, illegal practice

Comment on this story

If a motorist knocks down one of the many vendors and beggars at our intersections, where will the fault lie? With the beggar? The motorist? Or with the metro police for allowing this illegal practice to continue?

Lately, especially around the Cresta Shopping Centre, beggars kneel in the road. In dark clothes, especially in the evening, it’s a matter of time before one is hurt or killed.
