Ah, the mighty taxi. The fierce wanderer who abides by no rules but his own. In an admittedly picturesque video, a Cape Town local captured a taxi doing what taxis do best (making their own way through life) through lush greenery while the regular South Africans sat in traffic, saying no to innovation.
WATCH: The taxi that found his own path
@nieka.ireland Just your typical South African taxi finding ways to skip the traffic 💖🥰 #fyp #southafrica #capetown #taxi #surftok ♬ i am fckin crazy – tan
The video speaks for itself, but the comments are precious as we have all accepted the roaming taxi as a natural part of South African culture.
There really isn’t.
Some call it ‘illegal’ others call it ‘making a plan’.
You knew before you knew.
We do what we have to do in this country.
A mere suggestion at most.
At least we can laugh in ubuntu.
A taxi drive down memory lane.
It’s all about helping the economy.
