JMS 1 Tutorial Group 8's curator insight, October 9, 2013 8:47 AM

imagine a south african public transport system with the safety and efficiency of buses, without the need for taxis. Would there be an improvement or would it stagnate because people arent used to it. It makes one ponder whether we really want an alternative to taxis, when people are so used to it. All I know. There would be no more fighting with taxi-drivers for change.

We as South African's need to consider this road safety tip and making life more environmentally friendly. This is a great way of exercise whilst reducing the number of accidents on our roads. I know we can't do away with vehicles completely, but we can start enforcing safer methods for our future generations.
