Car abandoned in game reserve after accident


A car was found abandoned in Polokwane Game Reserve early on Sunday morning after it apparently left the road the previous day.
A visitor to the facility said his name was the first to be recorded in the visitor’s book at the entrance on Sunday morning shortly after 06:45. “I noticed the abandoned vehicle next to the road near the Tom Naudé koppie. From all the empty liquor bottles that are often found along the roads in the reserve, it appears that the place is becoming a popular place to socialise,” the source said.
Communications and Marketing Manager of Polokwane Municipality, Matshidiso Mothapo confirmed that the vehicle was found by municipal officials on Sunday morning. “Municipal traffic officials attended to the matter and no charges were registered. No municipal property or any animals were involved or harmed,” Mothapo said. The owner of the vehicle was not revealed.
Mothapo appealed to visitors to the Game Reserve to observe the speed limits and always to endeavour not to disturb the habitat. “Also consider fellow visitors,” Mothapo urged.
