Drug drive through hot spot

Everyday dealers operate on the Park West parking (Parklands main Road, Parklands, Table View, Western Cape), I can't even park my car without one or two guys stoping me to propose "something"! This place was quiet one year ago but now... it's ghetto style. They are on the parking, in the bar and I also heard they've got a kind of drug house upstairs used during the day. At night they use the parking. This place is facing a school and other ones are close. There is a police station on the same road at less than one kilometer and it looks like nothing is done to stop this traffic. I do believe that if they are there and stay there it's because they've got customers and the police leave them alone. I'm very worried about this threat and what the police can do (for the moment nothing). Drug brings more crime. NB: the picture is the exact location (GoogleStreetView) when this place was quiet and before it became a drug dealer paradise.

    Have you guys informed the SAPS and followed up? The SAPS have a duty to act on any info or complaint. Go and complain and hound them for feedback, they have to do something about it. Take the names of every cop you deal with. If they do not do their job take action against them, report them in the media using their name and also report them to superiors. Do not rest until the dealers are eradicated.

    This is still happening... The police is doing nothing about it. It really does look like a drive through.

    I have seen this spot.. also just up the road at Ashwood centre. they place drugs in the complex garden and roof by gutters. yu would see them reach up and get something and then a customer is met and he leaves. this place is even closer to the police station than park west... now even worst is the complex 84 on main. this is the closest residential complex to the police station than any in parklands.. police dont even need a van to get there. about 100m away. but there is a famous unit, unit 5, it is not a secret, they do it openly, it is the only unit that recieves lots of white young males and females... they come in sbber and leave all messed up. Police have raided the unit tooo many times. sometimes they do find something?, but funny thing is that bussiness goes on as nothing happened. these ppl have no respect for the law whatsoever...they have nothing to loose and lots to gain by such sales. it is very sad what south african law accomodates tthese people.....
