WATCH TAXI MOWS DOWN PEDESTRIAN

3788

A study done by the Automobile Association of South Africa recorded an annual total of 70 000 minibus taxi crashes which indicates that taxis in SA amount for double the rate of crashes than all other passenger vehicles. 

Detailed accident data is not available for this category of vehicle, so there is insufficient evidence to support a clear cause for the number of fatalities in minibus taxi accidents.

Minibus taxis are subjected to much more severe operating conditions than the average passenger car.
