Rights South African Traffic Officer

A South African Traffic officer is going viral after a video was released showing their awesome car directing skills.


Johannesburg, South Africa (13 March 2017) – Murray Kernick uploaded the video while sitting in his car at the corner of Witkoppen and Cedar Road. The video has already had over 1 million views and doesn’t seem to be slowing down.

The traffic officer, whose name we do not yet know, can be seen directing traffic on a hot Saturday afternoon with her South African flair. The best way to describe it… is someone who absolutely loves her job.

And social media users couldn’t agree more. Since the video was uploaded, hundreds of users have commented on how happy the video made them feel…

Lauren Campbell said: “Good for this legend!! Finding the joy in having to do a kak job on a Saturday!”

Judith Van Der Sandt added: “Ha ha awesome….love someone who knows how to make the best of every situation & breaking up a long, hot, monotonous day with some cool moves…great fun !!”

Symantha Trusler agreed: “10/10 to this traffic officer! Well done for having a blast whilst doing your job and putting smiles on all those commuters passing you by! You rock! Keep up the happiness! It’s what makes the world a better place”

Leandra Lombard said: “This is not an uncommon style while directing traffic – THIS is why I love Africa”

Heather Loggenberg commented: “I love this lady! She entertained me on my daily commute for a season in my life…But DUDE! Do not! I repeat! Do not EVER cross her. She will put you in your place so fast you’ll have whiplash. (I’ve seen her take on many a taxi driver with a huge amount of bravery)”
