Watch: Taxi pulling illegally moves, drives straight into a traffic officer

JMPD Officer South Africa

A taxi driver tried to make a quick (illegal) move to save some time in traffic… but got caught by a traffic officer and the entire thing has gone viral.


Best sight ever!

If you are South African, then the frustration of a taxi committing an illegal move, is something that we are all used to. It happens on a daily occurrence and usually the taxis get away with it.

But not this time.

Levi Shisler caught this amazing video just yesterday and its already racked up over 200 000 views.

The taxi pulled into the ‘oncoming lane’ and tried to bypass everyone standing still… but drove straight into a traffic officer and was forced to reverse (very slowly) all the way to the back of the queue.

“Guess it wasn’t much of a time saver in the end Mr Taxi driver.”

We’re not sure if the driver received a fine, as the video didn’t capture it but we are sure that he would have.

The video has been shared and re-shared thousands of times all over the internet with South Africans all agreeing that we need to see more of this (the traffic officers) and less of this (the taxis ignoring rules of the road).

Either way, majority of the South Africans who watched the video, felt lekker, that for once the taxi ignoring the rules, got caught.
