Just the other day, Bobby Nitro was almost surprised to discover that Cape Town has the most congested roads in SA. He thought Joburg took this dubious honour, but no, the Mother City is now the place where the chances of frustration are the highest.
All his life Bobby struggled with traffic, so much so he designs his life to avoid road crawls if he can help it. But now there’s no getting away from it, even at 3 pm the M3 is cluttered.
What it requires, though, is patience. Getting all worked up not only shortens life expectancy but also gets nice cars all banged up. When you stress, you make bad decisions, like trying to zoom ahead just to get two cars ahead in a jam, when that risky action will make no real difference anyway.
Creating a chilled vibe on the road, by the way, does not only help you, the driver, but it preserves the sanity of those around you. All this comes together to make the road a safer place. In this way we become responsible, and that’s how a healthy community operates. The change begins with you.
