The rate at which car accidents occur in South Africa is alarming. There is not a single day that passes by without more than 30 car accidents occuring especially around Gauteng. Car accidents in this province will keep continuing to exist because Gauteng is full of movement. Many cars are always on the road perculiarly company cars, buses and taxis. This is one of the reasons why traffic jams are inevitable in Gauteng.
Due to car accidents, people lose their lives everyday and some get crippled. There is something that needs to be done to decrease the number of car accidents on the busy roads.
With regard to accidents, the former star of Kaizer Chiefs and a soccer analyst Jabu Mahlangu was involved in a car accident in Benoni. He lost control of his white BMW and collided with a Toyota Quantum. Luckily he came out of the accident alive but the Toyota Quantum he collided with overturned, and at this point it is still not known how many people were in that Quantum and how many of them lost their lives. Jabu Mahlangu was allegedly intoxicated.
Jabu Mahlangu is the man who is known for having a drug and drinking problem. These two things nearly cost him his entire soccer career.
Drinking and driving is a serious problem in South Africa. Many people always get involved in car accidents because of driving while they are inebriated. The traffic cops have to make sure that hefty fines are imposed upon anyone who is found drinking and driving or even suspend their licences for a period of 5 years because people who drink and drive are putting other people's lives in danger.
People who own cars have to stop driving cars when they are intoxicated because alcohol reduces driving ability. It is not a bad thing to drink alcohol, but driving while you are drunk is not a good thing.
