I am always shocked about the high death toll on South African roads. On the other hand the behaviour of people in traffic is mind-boggling, this counts for car, truck and taxi drivers. But also for everyone else.
Check this video out. There is a young boy hanging on the end of a truck at about 100km an hour!! And the driver of the car doing the video is filming it with his mobile phone, while driving.
So we have a distracted car driver and a boy risking his life for saving the money for public transport. Both of them do not only risk their own life’s, but also life’s of others and that can be YOU!
Have a look at http://roadsafety.co.za/ for more examples on what is going on on our roads.
Let me know what you have seen or experienced while in traffic.
