In one of those classic ‘only in South Africa’ moments, a couple of motorists were shocked to find a car in front of them driving along with a supermarket trolley in place of a wheel!

South Africans are renowned worldwide for their entrepreneurial skills and unique solutions – remember, it was a South African who first invented the kreepy krauly (later perfected by an Australian) – so it’s little surprise that when the motorist in the green car couldn’t find a spare wheel, he improvised… with a supermarket trolley! As they say, necessity is the mother of invention.

Or, as they say in South Africa: ‘n boer maak ‘n plan (a farmer makes a plan).

P.S. Please do not try this at home!
