With a population of 61 million, South Africa is one of the most unequal countries in the world, with one of the highest crime rates. Its roads are a reflection of the country: extremely dangerous.

With nearly 14,000 deaths on the road every year, it is one of the riskiest countries in the world to be a driver. One of South Africa’s specialities is the shared taxis. There are almost 200,000 drivers who drive these vehicles, many in a totally irresponsible manner. A problem that the traffic police are trying to curb.

Another danger: holes in the road. There are several million potholes, responsible for spectacular accidents. Added to this are accidents caused by drink drivers, which stretch the emergency services to its limit.

Recalcitrant drivers, vehicle hold-ups and fatal accidents. An exceptional journey with the police services of the country with the most dangerous roads in Africa.
