A 63-year-old man from Seaview found himself in hot water this morning for ignoring clear road signs when he crossed the flooded Seaview Road and ended up with a R500 fine for this trouble.
To top it all his daring crossing took place while officials of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality and engineers representing the Eastern Cape Department of Public Works, Roads and Transport were busy with an inspection at the road. This road was closed in July 2012 after rain of approximately 185mm fell in the area.
This provincial road will remain closed even though the water level subsided to approximately 400mm. However if the good weather conditions prevail, it is predicted that the road could be opened by next week.
Editor’s Notes: I wonder if the real Cheeky was also fined?
