Don't get me wrong. I am all for densification! But when we densify, we need better urban design principles such as better interaction with the streets and more focus on the pedestrian. Security complexes are death to these principles! They don't solve the great SA city problem which is separation / segregation and car dominant development.

To earn a living, I guess?
There's always been a makeshift carwash there for as long as I can remember.
I suppose it looks odd to an outsider.

There's such a culture of entitlement that's been bred in Joburg that if by-laws did start getting enforced, there would be mass riots!
