When I arrived I bought one -very- small car at the local second-hand shop, which the dealer agreed to buy back from me at the end of our time here (at wholesale of course...)
If you need a car, go to Hope-Scott Garage in Currie and tell Tony I sent you. He and his staff are more than fair on price and wonderful to work with.
I decided to get a scooter to use as my work commuting vehicle. My first work location was only about a 10 minute ride, but then I had to go right into the city centre and that's about a 30 minute
ride. I leave the house at 7:15 AM and come back home at 4:00 PM to avoid most of the traffic. The ride is generally fine, but on cold, rainy days it's not very pleasant! The drivers
around here are generally excellent, but I always keep an extra watch for "White Van Man".
WhiteVan Men are tradesmen who drive generic white utility vans, hence the name. They are notoriously bad in traffic... I firmly believe the road system here grew out of sheep paths from the year 643 AD. Due to the extraordinatry number of one-way streets, no-right-hand turn intersections and bus/taxi-only roads, there are times when you literally can't get to where you want to go without warping space-time...
