Watch: A traffic officer in George made this man’s day by asking for his license

Traffic Officer

Jan Bronkhorst was pulled over by a traffic officer in George, Western Cape. He handed over his drivers license and experienced the most wonderful thing!


Jan Bronkhorst shared a wonderful video on his Facebook page after an encounter with a traffic officer in George. He was pulled over during a standard roadblock and asked to produce his drivers license.

The traffic officer took the license and began all the regular checks but then stopped because the drivers licence had an important bit of information on it that couldn’t be overlooked.

It stated that it was Jan’s birthday and so, the officer broke into “Happy Birthday” and sang for Jan.

The moment is incredibly touching and just goes to show that there are some wonderful traffic officers out there who go above and beyond to make the road users feel thought of.
