    God, please help your children.

      God does not have children. That's a sickening thought.

      So Jesus is not God then?

      Aubrey like i don't want to start a religious debate here. but if god is forgiving he should therefore help people who took short cuts

    When this cops are going to put the brakes on this Taxis?

      koos.meyer.52 - 2012-12-31 18:36

      Never, they are so blinded, they still after 20 years of taxi chaos can't see that the taxis are a major problem, astounding to say the least. They truly drive around blindfolded (the Police).

      Good pun BulletProof... even if unintended!

      Sorry the cops will not and cannot put the brakes on the Taxis, because they own the unroadworthy taxis and use unlicensed drivers.

  • prakash.singh.169 - 2012-12-31 15:10

    This is what happens when the police do not stop and check the mini bus drivers who drive without licences and unroadworthy vehicles.

    There goes taxi drivers again.

    And the culling of humans continues by an industry that is somehow allowed to get away with it. I wonder why the current regime tolerates this, it is generally their own voter base that are dying. Weird.

      They also pay zero Income Income Tax, parasites...

    Are we not God's children?

      simon.pearce.790 - 2012-12-31 18:43

      That depends on whether one believes in God or not.

    this will continue until the govt steps in to regulate the industry , proper driver training and taxis must be roadworthied every 2 years after the vehicle is over a certain age . these taxi should take out insurance for their passengers as well . virtually everyday i hear about a taxi accident on the radio , drive like maniacs in peak traffic
