South Africans tend to take short cuts with just about every thing. If there is a service station on a corner with entrances in both steets, cars will take a short cut through it rather than turning left at the corner. I know of a T junction with 2 lanes aproching the T, one lane turns left, the other right. If the quue to turn right is too long, drivers will take the left lane, turn right and cut off the cars that were legitimatly turing right.
OK, so where am I going with this. The other day I had dropped my grandson off at his day mother and was heading home a car came out of a side steet, without bothering to stop and check for oncoming traffic. First thing that popped into my head was that he had got his licnce in a lucky packet. No ther was a possiblity that he did not have a valid licence - you can buy you licence without going to the trouble of doing the test.
