CapeTalk listeners called in on Breakfast with kieno Kammies complaining about the Drop-and-Go section at Cape Town International Airport, saying it is a money making scheme.
Some listeners were saying they have been fined R1 000 for being there for under a minute, while others have said one official was very rude in chastising those who use the area as a collection point.
Deidre Davids, communications officer at ACSA says the problem is with people who use the section for collection. She says people who indeed use the section to Drop-and-Go will not have any problems. The airport has a section for pick ups and people should use it for collections, says Davids.
Davids also responded to complains about proper signage at the airport saying that they try very hard to make sure the signage is clear to everyone and if people have ideas concerning signage to contact her office.
Kieno Kammies also spoke to Alderman JP Smith, Mayoral committee member for Safety and Security about listeners complains on being given traffic fines at the airport.
According to Smith because of public use rights, airport roads are designated and registered as public roads. Traffic officers are within their rights to enforce law and order on those roads, says Smith.
