I had an awesome training ride this morning, except for a close call with a car out in Krugersdorp. I turned right into a double lane road, and the car came through the slipway turning left into the same road. She didn't bother to look at her blindspot, and just started to cross into the lane, OVER THE SOLID WHITE LINE! Luckily I saw she was going to do this, before she even started, and braked. What really ticks me off is that a traffic cop turned behind me, saw this happening, and did…NOTHING! Typical of most South African traffic cops, they only do something if it requires minimum effort, and makes maximum profit, ala speeding fines and talking on mobile phones. I haven't seen a cop pull over anyone for any other offence in a long time. When will they finally wake up, and do what we pay them to do?
The new national seeding was just released, I dropped one place. I'm now ranked 171/14,873 in my age group.
