In news about other cars, Briefly News wrote about the importance of road traffic safety as it prevents road users from being killed or seriously injured.

This stern reminder came after an alarming video shared by @CityofJoburgZA shows how not to drive on SA roads as three drivers illegally swerve in and out of traffic lanes.

The footage was shared recently on Twitter and shows a 4x4 bakkie move into a neighbouring lane before a smaller red vehicle charges forward in the yellow lane, presumably to overtake the bakkie.

The two cars almost crash into each other as they swerve in and out.
