Why I do not recommend "safaris"
They make them too large for our narrow roads, especially around Drakes Seat.
It says that the BIG ones are purchased as kits and the passenger area is added later. Usually by someone who doesn't know what they are doing.
When I first saw the article I was very upset, "Skirt Regulation". No Please! I like them short. 😉
LOL rotorhead. Ditto!
A&A: People think that they are legit public transportation. They are homemade and not really inspected or regulated. Every day I see ones without lights, proper bumpers, etc. I don't know. Between the chickens and the safaris,sometimes the wild west gets to me. 😉
Apparently no new safaris can be licensed and as the existing safaris go out of service, they cannot be replaced.
Personally I find them dangerous, hot and dirty and would rather ride in an air conditioned coach.
A lot of people have no other choice and Safaris are their only means of transportation. There's no doubt they are not ideal, but a lot of people would seriously suffer if they couldn't get around for a dollar or two.
