What cars do the worst drivers in South Africa drive?
The list is finally here on what cars the worst drivers in South Africa Drive. There is a very common trend with Toyota having 6 representatives on this list.
The biggest shock is that Volkswagen Polo drivers have been established as the worst drivers with 2668 fatal crashes, almost 400 more than the Toyota Hilux which is in second place.
Nissan, BMW, and Isuzu also make the list with one representative each.
A study found that Volkswagen Polo and Toyota Quantum vehicles aged between five and 10 years were involved in most fatal crashes when ranked by the grouping of vehicle make, model and age.
“A total of 48 330 vehicles were involved in 37 583 fatal crashes with 45 232 deaths during the period according to data on the Road Traffic Management Corporation’s national crash data management system,” the RTMC said in a statement.
We do expect a debate to stroll on – however here are what the stats say:
