International Driving Permit needed
There have been questions posted as to the need for having an International Driving Permit. And I for one was to the point of thinking that it was a waste of money and time. I have normally had one, but not always when driving outside of the USA.
Well it finally happened, met up with a police officer that knew what the law was. Stopped because I seemed to be going too fast, handed him my Washington State drivers license, he looked at it and said this is no good unless you have "International Drivers Permit". That is what the law is and luck would have it this was one of the times I had a current one. So if your thinking that maybe you do not need one you need to know that at least one police officer in South Africa knows what the law is.
Ride on and with a IDP
