Dear Sir / Madam,

I live in the south of Johannesburg.

I have been a resident in the area for the past 34 years and recently an unlawful boom gates were erected at the entrance of the street. Which was reported to Joburg Roads Agency.

 On saturday I notice a sign on the gates,

‘Petrea Street Indemnity’

Anyone entering this area including the grounds do so entirely so at their own risks. Everyone else connected therewith shall have no liability whatsoever for any injury to or death of any person, or loss of or damage to any property, howsoever caused even arising from negligence of any degree.

 Please can this be explained.

 Thanking you.

Kind Regards
