driving on Malawi roads is like a war against the other motorists. the mare overtaking no signals are indicated and when one is doung so, the other speeds up again so you see both cars like competing both vrooming at 80mph. Sad.
speed limit is never followed by many. I have seen drivers flashing on to the on coming car warning there is traffic police around. Shame shame shame.
from Lilongwe to Bt may be only 3 speed limit alert.

These big buses when driving at night they over speed. They also have this bad habit of driving with full beam on they never dip their lights blinding on coming vehicles which most likely was the cause of this accident. My condolences for those who have lost loved ones may they RIP
