- A young South African lady recently headed online to share a snap of the taxi she was travelling in
- The snap shows the frontside taxi near the steering wheel where a number of wires are protruding from that clearly shouldn't be
- Locals have had a lot to say about the snap and shared how they too sometimes found themselves travelling in broken-down taxis
A young South African woman recently shined a light on the condition of many local taxis that are in no condition to be on the road yet continue to carry hundreds of passengers to and from their destinations daily.
In the snap that was shared on Twitter by a woman with the handle, @Cebo80359046, many wires can be seen completely out of place near the steering wheel of the vehicle - yet the taxi was fully operational.
"Angikho right this taxi is too much hle," she captioned the snaps.
Locals had a lot to say about the taxi especially since it was not the first or only one to be in a bad condition yet was still on the road. Read a few of their comments below:
"I am truly sorry for your experience. Please forgive the owner of the Taxi. I hear your pain. Your emotions and feelings are Valid. You do not have to walk this dark path alone because I am here if you need someone to support you. I am here if you need a shoulder to cry on."
"I once had to help changing gears, while the driver counts the money."
"That oros bottle is the ntelezi holding your lives in that taxi."
In other Briefly.co.za news, a mind-boggling clip of a South African taxi driving with no door on it has been shared on Twitter by Twitter user, @dearbheki, who was one of the many passengers travelling inside the dangerous taxi. He captioned the short clip of the doorless taxi.:
"The taxi I’m in has no door. The lady next to the door is so scared."
Very soon many locals were taking to the comment section to share their thoughts on road safety and taxi drivers in the country, who more often than not abide by their own road safety and health regulations.
