Stay safe while driving in South Africa
We like it when we can tell you about something that really is very important and while, if you had done your research, you should know this, you might not and actually, there is nothing wrong with telling you this again. Reiteration carries conviction and all that.
The message is; be careful not to be caught out by fake roadside incidents by motorists that appear to be distressed while travelling in South Africa. This message is straight from the FCO.
