    It’s not a “highway” or “freeway” but a national road by the way, although this comment is totally irrelevant!

      A freeway is a limited access divided highway with grade separated junctions and without traffic lights or stop signs. This term is used in the United States, Canada, Australia, and South Africa. A highway is a public road, especially a major road connecting two or more destinations. However most South Africans seem to confuse these definitions with "Race Track".

      There have been +-106 billion births since the beginning of humans, with +- 6 Billion people alive at the moment SOOOOO... +- 100 Billion people will have died before December 2012... I would say Lettie, that the "oordeel" has come for the MAJORITY of people not just some!!! FFS, do you really believe this 2012 nonsense

      Verbatim - 2011-02-21 14:49

      @nuttyZA - As bizarre as some people may be, there is actually quite a few people \ cultures and religions who believe in this. I for one dont, but dont be too quick to discredit people who believe in this nonsense, there's quite a lot of believers out there..

      @Lettie Die wereld sou al op vorige datums vergaan het. As die ding vergaan, vergaan dit, wat wil jy in elk geval daaraan doen? Lewe dan tog maar asof elke dag jou laaste dag is, want jy weet regtig nie wanneer jou horlosie gaan ophou tik nie. Shaim, dalk moet jy tot Desember 2012 glad nie jou huis verlaat nie en as die wereld dan nie vergaan nie, kan jy jouself skop omdat jy maande van gemaklik (sonder sorge) lewe gemis het...

      I think come 21 Dec, 2012... everyone is gonna be a bit edgy... believers or not.

      I'd like to take a bet with anyone on this forum who is brave enough to put the wager in a neutral kitty - come Dec 2012 - absolute F/all is going to happen - YES - you guessed it - I am an Atheist!

    May their souls rest in peace. And to the little judges here, hope we don't pick up pieces of your flesh in the near future.

      Barry - 2011-02-21 16:43

      Well said Linda. All these stupid comments by all these stupid people. Lives have been lost and families are in mourning, but yet we will always have such idiocy on these pages. Condolences to the families.

      giantplums - 2011-02-22 07:58

      Thanx for the sane comment linda - I agree with you completely. This is about our peoples lives and something has to be done about it SOON.

      Mike - 2011-02-22 13:58

      @giantplums - unfortunately NOTHING is going to be done about the carnage on our roads - there is too much money at stake to be raked off the top. The authorities can promise all they want about coming down hard on the road users - it5 will not happen - the problems being that thereis too much fraud going on. I for one would like to see a different tyope of fine for motorists - e.g. If you are caught driving in the emergency lane (or without number plates, etc) by a cop - the cop has to have your car impounded immediately. The car is sold on auction (the guilty can buy his own car back), the cop gets half the money - thereby getting rid of the bribe! This will end a lot of the small things that iritate many law-abiding drivers.
