This video is so relevant with what has been happening on our roads of late, another Wild Dog was killed while commuting in Cape Town. Kevin Brookes loved motorcycles and brought that out in his art as well. This is one of his drawings of well known Dakar rider Alfie Cox.
Condolences to his family and friends... you will never be forgotten!
So we have suggested that in honor of Kevin all road users should begin using the Kevin Brookes rule;
"Before I start and move off I promise to be considerate towards all other road users, obey the rules and enjoy the drive/ride."
If every road user does this we will save so many lives that are currently being lost through lawless and inconsiderate road behavior. This will also make the lives of law enforcement so much easier as well, as they would be able to notice those who disobey and flaunt the rules so much easier.
We should also petition the powers that be to redress the corruption and other malpractice that does happen as well as have more visible policing and less static speed trapping... currently the focus is skewed toward the enforcement of speed restrictions an less on moving violations, these are the real killers.
So my wish is that we all Embrace Life and be Unpredictable Heroes by implementing Kevin's Rule when we use our roads.
