It hit me, when I was in Uni - we truly knew one of the worst drivers ever... She may have improved by now as it has been nearly twelve years since we drove with her last.
But back in the Res Rat days, we were desperate to get out and she had a car. So... we drove with her.
There was the time she took out a very large electronic driveway gate.
There was the time she turned onto a highway. Into the WRONG lane - into ONCOMING traffic.
There was the time she overtook someone without checking her mirrors and nearly hit the car that was overtaking her.
There was the time she turned up a one way, panicked and pulled back to the other side of a 4 lane road and ramped a curb. That was the last time we drove with her. We walked home that night because we couldn't face the trip home.

So as a girl from South Africa, it prides me to say that even though the taxi drivers there are appalling (read minimum of 10 people in an 8 seater space, a fair few parts falling off it, many stops by police, one or two incidents with guns and gangs) my worst driving experience was with a lovely blonde friend of mine!
