Cape Town - Cellphone footage taken on a South African freeway shows a severely damaged Toyota Corolla being driven by a motorist who can hardly see out of the front windscreen. 

Arrive Alive shared video that appeared on Facebook page of South Africa Exposed that questions why anybody would believe it's safe to drive a vehicle in that condition on public roads.

Vehicle maintenance and repair

Arrive Alive's Johan Jonck: "We were so stunned by that but knew that if we shared it and reflected on the unroadworthiness of the vehicle we would be blasted for not focusing on the illegality of taking a video of the incident while driving - hence the rather tongue-in-check wording of our tweet.

"Vehicle road-worthiness is a significant problem and threat to safety of all road users - and something that can only be addressed by effective and visible traffic enforcement

"Sometimes it might be issues not easily detected with the naked eye  - but in an incident like this it is both shocking and incomprehensible how someone might think that he can enter a roadway with such a vehicle!"
