Chris, hier by ons is daar ten minste drie elektriese skuif hekke op sekere hoofpaaie. Voetgangers en fietse/motorfietse kan langsaan deurgaan, maar nie voertuie nie. Daars  ook nommers wat jy bel, dan maak iemand die hek oop. Ons het onlangs voor een gestaan en daar was geen antwoord op enige van die nommers nie - eers na n halfuur iemand gekry wat kon oopmaak.
Lyk my as jy spesiale toestemming kry en aan al die vereistes voldoen, kan jy n hek op n openbare pad aanbring. Die hekke by ons is vir veediefstal en veiligheid opgesit.

I am intrigued by this route, but cannot seem to find anything on it from my friend gooooooogle or my map of resources. About 2 years ago we were in Die Hel and went to the very end of the road. There was a massive river to cross, so that put paid to that route. We were trying to get to Mr. Fox's Cottage and from there to Seweweeks Poort. Now reading that I can get to Touwsrivier, well, its worth another ride!!

Could you share, even just the starting section, from Die Hel?

There are basically two roads one can take out of Prince Albert.

There used to be a locked gate on the first one, but the second (higher) one was always open.

Which one were you on.

I think the commonly referred to hekkepad is the gravel road that joins the R407 with the R323 and passes just downstream of the Floriskraal dam. The turnoff we used was about 28km outside Prince Albert.

I fully sympathies with the security challenges and problems of farmers.  But we should find another solution.  Real criminals can buy a professional lock pick set for about R500, and a hacksaw for R80.  They pull out whole gates with a cheap tow rope, or fence wire that they stole from your own fence.  So a lock are not  going to stop a criminal.  But you are blocking my road.  And  I am on an XR650R with a 9.8 liter tank. And usually in an area with no cell phone reception.  If I do not have enough fuel to turn around, I will have to go through.  And the wires next to the gates are a softer barrier than the expensive locks.  Are these farmers making a criminal of me then?  One thing the farmers are missing.  Having some aggressive and crazy bike riders on your farms is beneficial to your well being.  We do take on criminals.  You being all alone on your farm, believing a locked rate will keep out barbarians criminals, are you're  biggest security misconception.  With these locks you are only inconveniencing the exact same people that are on your side of the political spectrum.  Why would you alienate your potential friends?

I live on a farm road together with a bunch of retards who believe locking a gate on a public road is a detrerant to a criminal
When he wants something you have he climbs thde gate , beats thd shit out of you, rapes your wife , steals everything he can by loading onto your bakkie with your guns etc in his possession and drives thu the gate unlocking with your keys
When help arrives if they ldave a phone for you to call from they have to struggle to get in
Result is loss of community and cameradrie, i have no interest in my neighbours , repeated requests to the farmers assosiation has met with hostility, havimg friends over or visitors is a n absolute pain
They have recently installed cctv cameras, together with the locked gates my solar oanels were still stolen at my river thru my friendly neighbours property, arseholes the lot of them
Im with Deon
Cut the fence next to the gate

Locking a gate does help to prevent crime, fact. Criminals are like water, they take the easiest route and if a gate prevents access to scout it will keep them out. Once they know there is something of value, nothing will keep them out though. Riding your bike in an area by day will not deter criminals. When they come to steal, you will be back home. Yes, by law you may not lock a gate on a public road, so break the lock. If you however cut a fence you will be in bigger shit as that is breaking and entering. The lawful access is the gate and cutting a fence next to the gate will be the same as cutting it anywhere else along the perimeter. You have access through the gate, nowhere else.

You are right, bie, 2 wrongs dont make a right
Why does the first wrong not get rectified or reversed , under any circumstance , the self rightous twat gets his panties in a twist vehemently when he gets wronged
State of our country and the state of the world
Getting worse daily
I have approached the farmers association, fire department, police, traffic department, da councellor after attempting to talk to the lovely heighbours.
There are actual ex army, a current police woman , x secret police living on the road, mentality of amoeba creating a choke point for attack....
I was advised by most authorties to take expensive legal action
Locking of private roads is your right, blocking public roads is not

It is quite common to lock relatively unused public roads and giving keys to those who has to use the road. If SAPS does not respond to criminal activity, what else can you do. Weigh up the livelihood of one person vs the fun of another.
