South Africa's N2: Where Traffic Laws Go To Die

Driving on the wrong side of the road and shifting with your left hand has taken some time to get used to. Merging from the left hand side is still weird. However, it's easy to see why South Africa's traffic accident stats are so high: Driving on the highway is a whole different experience.  It's common for 26-wheel trucks to continuously pass each other at 120 km/hr. And everyone drives halfway on the shoulder to create a shared, middle passing lane of death. At least everyone remembers to blink their hazard lights to thank you after they've survived.

We are off to Lesotho on a three day pony trek. No service and wifi is doubtful. More posts when we return!
