In my original post about OUTsurance I spoke about how OUTsurance managed to save me R400 a month with my Insurance Premiums. As I say in that post, I recommend that you get a free quote from them just to see if you can also save. Click here to get your OUTsurance quote.
Anyway, the reason for this post is just to say that I REALLY appreciate the whole “Mobile Pointsman” initiative. Here’s an excerpt from the news article on the OUTsurance website:
The project is an extension of Project Traffic Freeflow launched in September last year which, to date, has seen the introduction of 22 fixed pointsmen placed at high traffic volume intersections in and around Johannesburg.
In the second phase of the plan, 10 Mobile Pointsmen will be made available on motorcycles in an effort to further alleviate the cityâ€™s congested roads. These Mobile Pointsmen will predominantly focus on the Midrand, Sandton, Fourways and Randburg regions. They will be deployed to intersections where traffic signals are malfunctioning due to power outages and accidents.
I’ve seen these guys in action, and even though a lot of people complain about the apparent incompetence of pointsmen, I still think they can be a thousand times better than waiting at traffic lights that don’t function correctly…
So, another one up for OUTsurance in my opinion.
