Close Call at 100 and 200 Road Junction

Location: 
100 road towards the 113/213 junction
Date of Incident / Close Call: 
2007-09-19
Company Name: 
WINTON GLOBAL.
Details of Incident / Close Call: 

Two pick-ups were traveling loaded at excessive speed (estimated at 80-100km/h) on the 100 road towards the 113/213 junction.
The first pick up did not stop at the “STOP” sign at km 113 and proceeded through the junction. The second pick-up did notice the pick-up coming down the 200 road at km 213 and locked up the breaks and skidding on the gravel. No radio calls were heard and it is assumed that they might not have been on the right road channel. Unfortunately no company name or VIN plate were observed and reported.
Thanks to the alertness of the driver on the 200 road an incident was avoided.

Learnings and Suggestions: 

•All road signs must be honored.
A “STOP” sign means STOP!
•Intersection or junctions must be approached with extreme care and at speed that will allow a controlled stop.
•The appropriate road channel must be used at all times. Let other traffic know where you are and which direction you travel] especially at road junctions and inter sections.
•At no time is “Excessive speed” permitted.
