Not all taxi drivers are bad and a recent video posted online proved it. The footage shows a taxi driver stopping to help direct traffic after the lights stopped working.
The video was posted on Facebook on 28 November by Cindy Khumalo, and was later shared several times on the #ImStaying page.
Khumalo captioned the video:
"He got off his taxi to assist with traffic."
South Africans were inspired by the taxi driver using his own time to help direct the traffic.
Anton Engelbrecht commented:
"Wow he is setting a brilliant example to all around him!"
Laetitia Visagie added:
"While looking out for prospective passengers."
