    Report inaccurate - the accident was not near Malmesbury - it happened at the N1 turnoff vangaurd drive. We travel that road daily and had to go via goodwood/edgemead and back onto N7 this morning. My condolences to the families.

    About 9 days ago I too used the road between Cape Town and Malmesbury during the early hours of the morning. The driving by others was absolutely atrocious. Overtaking on blind bends and in the face of oncoming traffic. Otherwise I found the average Cape Town driver to be safe and considerate to other drivers. Please people maintain that mindset.
