While South Africa saw a dramatic drop in road crashes and deaths during the 2020 holiday periods, the same cannot be said for many other countries worldwide. According to a study conducted in the USA, there was a 4.6% increase in road fatalities in 2020 compared to 2019.
The automotive sector, mining and agriculture have taken a huge knock in the past year, but remain South Africa's best chance for a change in fortunes given their track record and faith placed in them by international markets.
At the outset, I was more than impressed, but by no means surprised, with the all-new Peugeot 2008. Bumper to bumper and try as hard as I could, I could not find a single misgiving with the SUV.
My dad owned a Peugeot 403 some years back; that station wagon had the gear lever on the side of the steering wheel as an extended indicator stalk.
Remember that? And, being a station wagon, there was ample space at the back. Fast forward to 2021, the 2008 has come a long way with many, many improvements in ride, safety and comfort.
