- A video clip has surfaced online showing another taxi driver breaking the law
- The footage shows the taxi driving into oncoming traffic
- South Africans were not happy with the taxi driver thinking he's above the law
On Sunday, South Africa Live shared a video on Facebook that left Mzansi social media users stunned.
The clip shows cars in traffic having to make way for a taxi after the driver decided to drive in the wrong lane.
"Then you get this guy," the video was simply captioned.
Take a look at the video below:
The video gathered over 58 000 views in just a day and Briefly.co.za took a look at some of the comments.
Nhlanhla Van Best commented:
"Sorry the driver who was in there is a former paramedic driver so he probably thought he was driving an emergency vehicle."
Muhammad Engar wrote:
"Taxis are above the law because they break practically every rule of the road but very seldom get caught. Must be muthi."
S'bu Dhludhlu added:
"No law and order in our country, you literally can do anything you want... it’s time our law enforcement agencies take a stand."
Richard Young said:
"These videos should go viral to show the world how slack our traffic authorities are."
It's not the first time a taxi driver was caught on video breaking the law. We previously reported on another clip showing several taxis driving on the pavements as other vehicles waited in traffic.
The clip was seen over half a million times. Social media users took to Facebook to express their disapproval for the taxi drivers going against the law and potentially putting other drivers' and pedestrians' lives at risk.
