Minnaar said the National Road Traffic Act does not prohibit trolley pushers from pulling their trollies on the road.

“It is important for drivers to remember to share the road with all other road users,” Minnaar said.

He said the contribution from trolley pushers was valid in the country’s economy.

“It is always advisable for motorists to watch their surroundings while driving. Either its trucks, buses or pedestrians, we all have to share the road,” he said.
