Cape Town drivers are the safest in SA, claims report

Capetonians are the healthiest safest drivers in the country.

This is according to a report titled, The Road to a Healthier South Africa 2018.

The report was compiled using the cross-sectional data of Discovery members living in six main metropolitan areas for the past three years.

Dr. Chris Nossel, the Head of Vitality Wellness, explains that some of the data was taken from Discovery Insure with the information of at least 250 000 drivers.

Nossel explains that the findings took into account some key driving behaviours, including speeding, harsh braking, cornering, and cell phone usage.

The data doesn't lie.
