On Sunday, a video was shared by Facebook page Real Live SA, which showed a taxi driving running a red robot and causing an accident.

A biker's helmet camera caught the entire incident, which showed a taxi driver cutting him off after he slipped a red robot.

The biker then goes on to overtake the taxi for a brief moment before the public transport driver bumped him, resulting in the man crashing down on the road.

The video was captioned: "Shocking!!! Even the passengers have had enough," and it gathered over 87k views in just a day, gathered.

The footage sparked quite the reaction on social media, and some South Africans said they would have treated the situation with a lot more aggression than the biker did.

Lephuse Mokopi wrote, "U r polite, i would have used the helmet n smashed his window then take the quantum home."
Mabee Mohlala said, "These taxi guys are so rude in a way that if we had options we would have left their business a long time ago. They think they own the road and the people."
Johnny Dinis commented: "You not suppose to be polite and ask him to stop... treat him with his own manner, through a brick through his window and try make sure it hits his head...then maybe he will see what he's done and stop."
