A day after I visited the Kirkwood Police Station with Karen Smith, three extra vehicles were delivered to the Kirkwood station. This comes after we discovered that the station which services an area of 1 327 square km, only had one operating vehicle.

The massive shortage of operating SAPS vehicles was further highlighted when police had to use bicycles to attend to a house robbery in Mount Croix, Port Elizabeth on Tuesday 21 January 2014. The East London and Port Elizabeth flying squads have also had to operate with only two to three vehicles a day.
