What do you think about ...

The Rep - - EDITORIAL OPINION -

The Rep re­porter Simtembile Mgidi took to the streets to ask peo­ple in Trans­port Month how they feel about the driv­ing of pub­lic trans­port ve­hi­cles and the con­di­tion of the ve­hi­cles

Simba Melvin from Uni­found

Some pub­lic ve­hi­cle are of an in­dus­try stan­dard, but some are not. The seats are old, but the driv­ers are all nice. How­ever, their driv­ing is very fast, so one tends to be scared.

Karin de Vil­liers from Ko­mani Park

They are very im­pa­tient driv­ers and do not know the rules of the road. When taxi driv­ers stop at the mall, I have seen them drink­ing al­co­hol. Drink­ing and driv­ing is dan­ger­ous. You could drive well and not be the cause of a fa­tal ac­ci­dent, but the fes­tive sea­son is ap­proach­ing which makes me even more scared.

Shiree Ler­oux from New­vale

I prom­ise you I could scream when it comes to pub­lic trans­port. Taxi driv­ers stop wher­ever, putting their haz­ards on and re­turn­ing to the road with­out look­ing. I have been in taxi ac­ci­dents so of­ten. Two weeks ago, I was in one when a taxi drove into the taxi I was in just as we were en­ter­ing the road. No am­bu­lance was called and we had to get into an­other taxi be­cause we had to get to work.

Zan­dis­ile Dy­wili from Lady Frere

The con­di­tions of the taxis are 100%, I know, be­cause I use them. I also check them and when they are not in a good con­di­tion, we do not al­low them to go on the roads. Their driv­ing is good, be­cause we dis­ci­pline driv­ers who drive reck­lessly.

Michael Filo from Nomzamo

Driv­ers dif­fer ac­cord­ing to which taxi you are in. Some driv­ers are nice while some are rude as if they are do­ing you a favour, but I think in the lo­ca­tion they mostly drive well.
