quality South African driving

hey everyone

well, here in Johannesburg we have some of the busiest roads in the world. in fact, i seem to recall, the highway i travel on each day is officially the "busiest highway or road in Africa". i am not sure who takes the time and trouble to work that out, but there you go.

anyway, other than the usual peak time traffic build ups, every now and then you get a motorist having a rather good idea. like, for instance, the driver of a "bendy bus" deciding that actually they want to go south instead of north, and having no problem with trying a u-turn.

needless to say, the bus got stuck, causing delays in both directions. nice one bus driver, well done. you can't really see in the pic, but what makes this all the more interesting is that the bus driver was no more than 100 meters away from an intersection with traffic lights, at which they could have turned right, followed the road around and rejoined in the direction they wished. go figure.

be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!! try and obey the rules of the road, they are normally there for good reason!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
