I used to drive down to East London from Cape Town every three months to visit my elderly mother. As soon as you enter the Ciskei all road rules go out the window. People drive like its the wild west. I had one idiot overtake a line of cars going down a curve to the left on a double white line and he must have being doing twice the speed limit. From the beginning of the Ciskei till the other side of the Transkei you have to drive extremely defensively.
