Overtaking on R27

Roger Tipping, Melkbosstrand

Nearly every trip I am confronted by somebody overtaking a vehicle that has moved over into the yellow lane but they will still cross the barrier line by a large amount into oncoming traffic.What goes through a person’s mind while they are doing this? I have no idea. It’s extremely dangerous, and, this morning, this happened thrice, causing me to take evasive action.

The other thing that happened this morning was a person who overtook me while I am in a queue of moving traffic then forced her way in, in the face of oncoming traffic. We got to the Sunningdale traffic lights side by side after she repeatedly performed this same procedure for a good portion of the R27!
