South Africa has had an opportunity to have one of the best public transport within the continent and all that was needed to occur is have road worthy vehicles. People are constantly on the move, if they're not going to work, then they have to run errands and do other important things in their lives. Unfortunately, not everyone has the luxury of having their own transportation, hence they might need to use taxis, cabs and even staff cars. Now, a Twitter user has raised concerns over horrible taxis that are still operating in and around Gauteng.

We're talking about taxis that you can easily see that they cannot arrive to your destination on time. Others even barely get to move around the city as they have to be fixed continuously. Even when you look at the taxi's exterior without even seeing the interior you can easily say it's not road worthy. As it has rust all over it, even a paint job cannot hide the fact that the taxi has been around for a long time. The doors and lights looked broken and damaged. In fact, the whole taxi isn't appetizing at all to the commuters. Even though they'll have to pay for it and hope that they reach their destinations.

According to reports, the taxi does operate around Bara taxi rank in Gauteng and it's allegedly owned by a government officials. At the sametime some stated that an old and dirty looking vehicle can still pass the road worthy criteria. It's believed that the taxi operates in the afternoons and it's driven by an old man as he cruise with his 20km/hour." This taxi is prove that law enforcement is just out there for vibes...All this police deal with traffic and we pay billions for them to exist and they all can’t take this taxi off the road. Gauteng traffic police. National traffic police. Johannesburg metro police. Is just for Vibes," wrote Murphy Moffat on Twitter.
