ASA roads costing motorists more than R200bn annually by Miles Carter
Monday, April 06, 2009
On a leisurely Sunday morning outing, you fall from your bicycle while swerving to avoid a large pothole in the road. You sustain serious injuries.

The Constitutional Court’s decision was premised on the finding that these provisions were inconsistent with the right to personal freedom entrenched in the Constitution.
