“Frustration balanced by innovation! So, today at the Traffic Dept in Randburg, after standing in the queue to pay for her driver's appointment, only to find that she needed a photocopy of her learner's license.
“My daughter was in tears. Fortunately, this helpful gentleman came to our rescue and made a copy for her right there in the street.
