Ah, fresh piping hot justice!
Background: South Africa has a billion dollar informal minibus taxi industry. The minibuses are often unroadworthy and the drivers are a blizzard of special snowflakes and a law unto themselves. They very frequently completely ignore any and all traffic regulations, and the number of mindblowingly dangerous manouvres I've personally witnessed minibus taxi drivers pulling is too long to count (including things like doing a U-Turn across a four lane highway to drive the wrong way up the shoulder to pick up a passenger, or going the wrong way up a highway offramp to cut across the oncoming traffic to get to the lanes going the other way, or going diagonally across an intersection againt lights and traffic flow to end up blocking a slipway to drop off a passenger).
Anyway, this morning on my way to work I'm stopped at a red light and I see a taxi pull up next to me and then cheerfully (without even slowing down even slightly) continue on through the red light across the intersection. Practically an everyday occurence frankly. Pity he didn't notice the clearly marked traffic police car RIGHT behind him. The blue lights came on before the taxi's tailpipe had cleared the intersection and by the time I got a green light, he had been pulled over on the side of the road and the cop was stomping towards the snowflake-piloted taxi with a very irate look on his face.
It's pretty hard to miss traffic police cars here, they're white with intense bright orange stripes and stand out like a sore thumb.
