It's heartbreaking to lose a loved one in a South African road accident, but that's a fact of life in this country, where dozens of people are killed on average every day.
In South Africa, the number of road accidents is on the rise due to the fact that many of our drivers lack proper training in the art of driving.
People in South Africa know that a certain driving school is linked to the South African licensing agency, and that many people get their driving licenses there.
Driving under the influence is a major factor in the high number of collisions in South Africa, which explains why so many people are killed or injured on the country's roads.
15 people were killed in a horrific bus crash in Pretoria, South Africa, on the Garankuwa Road next to Bundu Inn today. It is true that the people who died were on their way to work to provide for their families, but it is unfortunate that they didn't make it.
Drivers need to pay extra attention when there are a lot of people in the vehicle, as many individuals fail to arrive at their destination due to the fact that bus owners don't service their vehicles.
The families of the people who were not able to get to their destination because of a bus accident are greatly affected. It is important for bus drivers to thoroughly inspect the condition of the bus they will be driving on a given day, rather than losing 15 lives in a single day.
Additionally, owners must ensure that their buses are being driven by qualified drivers.
As far as I'm concerned, this is a huge blunder, and many people should exercise caution when taking public transportation.
