In contrast, ‘’Radikal Maestro’ didn’t feel so courageous tackling traffic and had Mzansi in stitches with his hilarious comment about he feels in packed roads. “I once experienced this kind of congestion in Bree Street, I was sweating right down my ass,” he wrote.
“It was bad, meeting someone in New Town I took the wrong route and it was after 5pm. Putco on my tail, 1 taxi from parking & 1 from right lane both trying to cut me off at the same time without even looking at me, it was like I wasn't even there & I was driving an SUV, I nearly pissed my pants!
Precious Tungata shared how she left the sleepy streets of Port Elizabeth for the big city and realised driving in Johannesburg is a different game altogether.
“I'd just moved to JHB from PE and ended up in CBD while on my way to 100 Main for training. How I got there is beyond God's grace,” she recalled.
