In response to the rising cases of pedestrian deaths and home invasions in the Mogoditshane policing area, cops have implemented strategies to address these issues.

This includes ensuring that people use the zebra crossing, controlling traffic, and making sure drivers stop to allow pedestrians to cross," explained Bok.
