Talk Radio 702 and OUTsurance are calling on motorists to nominate their favourite pointsperson for the 702 &OUTsurance OUTshine awards.
At the end of the year, the most popular monthly winners will be awarded a first, second and third place overall prize and will win R40 000, R25 000 and R15 000 respectively in Builder’s Warehouse vouchers.
Motorists who are unsure of their pointspeople’s names can identify them on the website by locating the intersection where they are based.
“We encourage motorists to share their special stories in the nominations as we want to pass these on to our pointspeople, to show them what a big difference they are making,” said Colleen Bekker, of Traffic Freeflow which runs the 702 OUTsurance Pointsmen project.
“It is a great opportunity to give the individuals recognition for a job well done, and to motivate the whole team to continue to do their utmost to get motorists through the traffic as quickly as possible. We’d love to hear about instances where a pointsperson got you to that important meeting or your kid’s first soccer match in the nick of time, for example,” said Peter Cronje from OUTsurance.
