Professional Aftermarket Car Sound Systems and Upgrades

Nowadays, most new vehicles are sold with car sound systems as standard equipment, unlike 20 or 30 years ago when even just a radio was an optional extra on most affordable city vehicles.

Protecting Yourself Against Thieves That Smash and Grab

A very common type of crime in South Africa is when thieves smash car windows and grab your belongings. This usually happens at intersections like at red traffic lights where traffic is stationary and the typical targets of this type of crime are cellphones, wallets, purses, handbags, laptops, briefcases, backpacks, shopping bags, keys, and tablets.

Get A Bluetooth Car Kit and Stay on the Right Side of the Law

Many South Africans seem to believe that they don’t need a Bluetooth car kit and are allowed to handle their cellphones while operating their vehicles, as long as they are not actually holding it to talk on it or as long as their vehicle is stationary. The reality is different and, in fact, South Africa’s cellphone legislation in terms of using these devices in vehicles is very clear:
