The terrifying footage was by an unknown person who was seemingly taking a rest stop along the road. The person pans the camera towards a truck and then suddenly a red bus overtakes it a dizzying speed. It's unclear what speed the bus was traveling at.

According to local road safety group Arrive Alive, bus passengers have the right to report any neglient driving behaviour they witness to the bus operator. The driver has a responsibility to not put himself or passengers in harms way and that includes not breaking the rules of the road.

Perhaps it's because kind gestures like the one explained below are not as common anymore, but social media loved seeing a fellow South African helping another, Briefly News reports.

A truck driver working for Bogdans Transport found himself in a spot of trouble on a road in Mpumalanga. The driver, who was travelling on a stretch between Delmas and Endicott, posed with Van Tonder for a photograph after the good samaritan had helped him.

Mpumalanga is known for having bad road surfaces and residents in the province have long complained about the state of roads riddled with potholes.
