Yesterday we were yet again driving out to Somerset West on the N2, chatting away, when all of the sudden Nick stops in the middle of his sentence – oh my god! I turn my head to look ahead in the right hand lane (the fast lane here – they drive on the wrong side), and see something tall f-a-l-l-i-n-g in slow motion towards the cars on the freeway. At first I had no clue what it was, but after looking around I realized it must have been one of the streetlights that line the grassy area in the center of the road. As we drove by we could see that there was a car on the other side of the freeway which had run into the pole and spun out. Lucky for the guys on our side of the road, no one seemed to be hurt – though the driver of the Yaris which was stopped just inches away from the fallen pole looked a bit shell-shocked! Ah, it’s always interesting on the N2.
