No cop to stop risky practice

ON Thursday while driving in Cannon Street, Uitenhage, a few metres from the police station, I drove behind this bakkie shown in the picture. As you can see from the picture, this young man is holding on for dear life on the back, balancing on the side of the bakkie.

But look carefully – can you see the little boy cuddled up against him? The driver of the bakkie drove for around 7km, from town to another suburb, to a new house maybe?

Amazing, it is not? It is no wonder we have such carnage on our roads and not a traffic officer/policeman was in sight. Surely this means of conveying passengers is not legal.
