You can check out the video below – and, as always, Mr. Harris is entertaining and charming and knows what he’s talking about!
Which one would you prefer? The Renault or the Ford? It’s a tough one for me…
Cars.co.za has released yet another interesting and useful infographic to shed some light on the automotive scene in South Africa.
Last month, we published their infographic on May 2013, and now we bring you June’s numbers. It is quite interesting to compare the two; has he automotive scene picked up or has it dropped over the last month?
In May of this year, the total amount of new car sales in the country reached 53 997. This month, the figure came freakishly close to May’s number, clocking in at 53 562.
South Africans’ favourite cars have basically stayed the same, with a little change up in the ranks:

Despite media hype and according to recent stats, more South Africans have arrived safely this past festive season compared to the previous year. Whether this has been due to ramped up traffic policing, successful “Don’t Drink and Drive” campaigns, or simply good manners is uncertain. Individual safety as a road user, however, rests on slightly more tangible properties, which remain important for all.
Whether one is the head of state or an average driver, there are universal precautions one should take on the road. Due to it becoming a habit, most drivers do not realise just how they behave as drivers: travelling at more than 100 kilometres an hour, in a powerful metal contraption weighing more than a tonne (sometimes several).
