Cops are too busy trapping high-tech cars to fill their pockets in stead of catching taxi drivers blatantly breaking the law!

I wish someone somewhere could please pull some stats. It would be interesting to know what the stats are for Taxi involvement in all fatal accidents on our roads. COSATU complains of the mining industry killing their members I will bet everything I own that the taxi industry has killed more of their members than any other so called industry in this country. Hey Mr. Vavi aren't you lucky (and us unlucky) that you do not have to use taxis?
