    Default West Street, Sandton

    Somebody phoned me asking how he can get to the corner of West St and Rivonia Rd. I was a bit dumbfounded because, although the poor guy is not a city slicker, and his visits to Gauteng can be counted on one hand AND have fingers spare, he is very knowledgable with his routable GPS.....

    The conversation that followed was rather comical as I was taking the mickey out of him, until I realised he was actually serious when he said "I CAN'T %[email protected]#^@# FIND THE ^%## INTERSECTION YOU DUMB %#$%^[email protected]# A&%$OLE!!!"

    So I got into Mapsource, and tried to find the intersection that I can drive to with my eyes shut........and it's not there....somebody stole the intersection of West and Rivonia.....in fact, somebody stole the entire West street in Sandton, and replaced it with a street called "West West"
