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!


George, Western Cape – 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 driver’s license.

The traffic officer took the license and began all the regular checks but then stopped because the driver’s 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.

“Vanoggend stop n “Speedy” van George my, “net n roetine stop Meneer, wys my jou bestuur lisensie” en toe gebeur dit.” – Jan Bronkhorst

Which translates to:

This morning, George’s “Speedy” stops me, “just a routine stop, Sir, show me your driving license” and then this happened.”

The video has been viewed over 140,000 times and has given so many South Africans a reason to smile today.

  1. The worst people in the world can have absolutely desastre influence on massas of dimwits which are easily manipulated to believe in total crap.
    Starting as example with Adolf Hitler. He was able to work the German nation into believing of being of super race.
    Now we had Jacob Zuma and now Julius Malema provoking massas into believing total trash.
    However there are still some people who without having to sit in the pew perform kindness to other fellow men without any expectations of rewards.
    Please excuse my English errors as English is not my home tong.
    Wishing you love and prosperity

  2. I would love to meet this woman nd do something for her aswel for her birthday.. she one of the rare gems let on this planet earth.. God bless her
