Potholes in the road are things that can get South Africans pretty riled up. Sometimes they even withhold their taxes until something is done about them. So which is the worst-potholed stretch of road in South Africa?
I'm not talking about namby-pamby English potholes, but those worthy of the much more descriptive Afrikaans word 'slaggat' (or slaughter hole).
You can read my blog post here: Top 5 worst towns and roads in South Africa.
Naturally, not everyone was happy about my choices.
But the person whose disagreement appealed to me most was Johan Smith. He claimed that the worst stretch of road he'd ever travelled in this country was the R36 between Lydenburg and Ohrigstad.
'On this road you get pulled over for drunk driving when you drive straight,' he argued, referencing an old joke about driving in Africa.
Then he sent me the video below to prove his point.
Leave a comment below: you can agree with Johan's choice, or elect any other stretch of road in South Africa instead.
