The duty of a local authority to ensure a safe environment for members of the public was recently examined by the Cape Supreme Court. Cape Town Municipality owns a busy public parking area on the banks of the Liesbeeck River canal in Rondebosch. On a wet and drizzly day, Mr Butters, 72 years of age, parked his car facing the canal with the car's nose protruding over the kerbstone. There was no barrier other than the kerbstone between the parking area and the canal. It was dusk and the light was failing.
