This week I was waiting on a pavement in the Cape Town CBD, waiting for a lift.
A car moseyed up one-way Long Street, slowed, stopped. Reversed ten or twenty metres, made a right turn and proceeded on its way. Luckily there were no cars right behind it, and all was well.
I smiled, thinking: “Only in South Africa…”
And it is amusing, in its way.
But really it is indicative of all that is wrong on our roads, where this festive season 1 755 people were killed.
