As much as taxi’s have become a common cultural acceptance on South African roads, they are still a dangerous feature. It is currently estimated that over 60 000 minibus taxis are driving on roads uninsured.
Statistics, however, are downplaying the impact of minibus taxi accidents on the roads. It is claimed that small motor vehicles accounted for 47.9% of total crashes in 2016. While, light vehicles accounted for 22.7% of crashes and mini buses, 10.1%. Trucks came in at 4.1%.
