K A modern BRT system can transport as many people as a rail-bound system, but the investment cost is only 5–10% compared with a tram or metro system.

The attempted robbery occurred on one of South Africa’s busiest motorways. Seventeen men, armed with AK47s and driving a minibus and two cars, stopped a security van. According to police, the van came under fire and was forced off the road. However, despite four attacks with explosives the Gunnebo safe – a Chubbsafes 280 L CAT 4 – remained com- pletely intact.
