There really is nothing people will put past taxis. Seeing a taxi with two rows of seats attached to its roof has left the people of Mzansi both concerned and in stitches.
We have seen taxi drivers replace steering wheels with monkey wrenches and windows with black plastic bags, but this is just next level.
“It's definitely not overloaded...…”

People react to the questionable upgrade to the taxi
While it does not look and sound like this is in Mzansi, the people of South Africa have had a good laugh at this makeshift double-decker taxi.
A lot of laughs were had but there were also many who left messages of great concern in the comment section. This is just too much lol.
Take a look at some of the comments

“As funny as it is, the sad side of their reality hits hard. Desperation knows no boundaries. Not everyone has the privilege to have their own vehicle and many cannot afford alternative means of transport. They do what they have to do, in order to get where they need to go, to "survive", by jeopardizing their own safety and lives.”

“I rest my case, what is the world coming to. God please help South Africa.”

Couple thank unknown taxi driver for showing concern when they were stranded
A sweet Mzansi couple wanted to thank an unknown taxi driver for showing concern and offering help in their time of need. It is not every day that someone shows such selflessness, reported Briefly News.
The days of stopping for hitchhikers or assisting with a broken-down vehicle on the side of the road in SA, are over. Crime has scared people into putting their safety before kindness.
Taking to the #ImStaying Facebook page, Heslene Williams shared her and her husband’s #ImStaying moment. Breaking down after their car overheated and having watched multiple cars drive by, finally a taxi driver stopped to ask if Heslene and her hubby needed help.
