If You Think Your Commute Is Bad..

South African Car Accident

Just be thankful you don’t live in South Africa, as it’s home to some of the most dangerous driving conditions around! While most drivers in South Africa are safe, responsible, and respectful to others on the road, there’s a big problem facing drivers each time they get behind the wheel – Unlicensed drivers.

Years ago, a New York Times journalist reported that 1 in 7 drivers were unlicensed, and almost 1 million had fake licenses! Add to that an overwhelming number of unroadworthy and unsafe vehicles on the road, and it’s easy to see why auto fatalities are 150% more common in South Africa than in the United States.

So it’s clear why some of the top selling cars in South Africa are trucks and SUVs, as they offer drivers and passengers some added protection should the worst happen.
