Driving / Car safety, Cape Town: 13 reviews and 3 photos

Most cars in SA have air-con so don't wind your window down & drive with your arm out even if you did fancy that one arm tanned look.
It is not safe to do this.

Secondly make sure all the doors are locked when driving & try make sure the remote opens only the drivers door instead of all 4 at the same time. Someone can jump in the back.

Providing you take precautions it is safer driving in South Africa
