A quick essay on why I hate Sandton despite the awesomeness that it contains...

Okay, for those of you who do not get to go to Sandton too often (I am specifically referring to the CBD), they are busy with a project to 'move' Sandton City.
This conjures up images of the mega movers loading the towering building on the back of huge mover trucks and hauling the whole thing through the congested streets, but alas, they are just breaking down sections of the parkade and building a newer more compact version. This, however, causes that huge building equipment sits in the single lanes that traverse the area, forcing traffic to a standstill and rendering your shiny Garmin all but useless...
To top this all, one of the primary arteries, Rivonia road, is all but blocked off, and furthermore suffers from an out of service traffic light on Katherine, which further diminishes your chances of actually getting anywhere...
I just needed to vent a little, why can't the JMPD move some of the idiots that sit and trap unwary motorists who are driving like maniacs because they are late due to the traffic issues, and have them assist by playing poinstman at these intersections...
