    Tragic! Keep safe on the roads people! The festive season has only just began!

      Bardy - While you dramatically stamp your foot (aansit) at the drivers that you don't know and wave a "high moral standards" flag, I am just as scared to drive on the road with people who are barely literate. Did you really pass your K53 test and if so - who read it to you? I trust that your driving is far better than your grade 4 grammar .....

      @ davesub - What are you on about and what is wrong with my grammar? I did not realise that this was an exam?

      There is no solution to the problem. i spent years driving all over SA and 100 percent of the time, when there was some car overtaking me on a blind rise with oncoming traffic almost causing and accident, it was a black person behind the wheel. So as long as there are stupid people on the road, there will be deaths. I once did a survey at an intersection in Centurion to monitor abusers of traffic rules. In 8 hours 62 taxis skipped a red traffic light, I have it all on film. The traffic department was not interested at all to see it, because they too came to work in those very same taxis.

    Willie the minister of transport is not to blame! It is the bad attitude SA drivers have and their disregard of traffic rules

      Willie - 2011-12-23 15:03

      Then arrest traffic cops and drivers
