In yet another “Only In South Africa Video” things get heated between popular YouTube motorcyclist Sean N and a Joburg taxi.
The footage first emerged on his channel on October 8th, 2018 and since got people talking, as South Africans do.
His helmet camera captures the full exchange which lasted just short of 9 minutes. It starts with what seems to be a ride involving him and some friends down Sloane Street in Bryanston before meeting a taxi head-on driving down the wrong side of the road.
Things quickly escalate as the taxi is forced to stop and a verbal exchange takes place, some not for the faint-hearted. The taxi driver continues to complain as the biker forces him to reverse until he reaches a busy roundabout and has to wait in peak hour traffic like everyone else.
The clip was posted yesterday with the caption;
Wasnt going to let this bugger through!! Excuse the language…
One would take their hat off to this guy who had the courage to put this wrongful driver in his place. An incident that won’t really make a difference but nice to see.
To the relief of many unhappy South Africans the taxi driver, thanks to social media were found moments later and arrested by JMPD.
As reported in the media the driver will be held until his next court appearance in November this year.
He appeared in the Randburg Magistrates Court on 12 October. He will remain in custody until his next court appearance, which will be on 12 November. He’s facing charges of reckless and negligent driving
