Reader: Driver's disregard the rules
In reponse to the article published on Wheels24 in October 2012, reader Dawson emailed us to share his thoughts on drivers in SA:

I live down the road from a primary school, and the majority of parents, who drop their children at school, show a blatant disregard for road safety.
The fact that many people do not use their indicators, and have a total disregard of rule of the road, also has a huge impact on road deaths!
