GO GEORGE Condemns Reckless Action

GO GEORGE took notice with shock of the photo on social media of a passenger hitching a free ride on the back bumper of a bus. This conduct is totally unacceptable and extremely dangerous, both to the culprit as well as other road users in case he should fall down from the bus in traffic.

“The safety of all passengers is our priority,” said James Robb, GO GEORGE Manager, after the incident. “We strongly condemn this behaviour, much more from a safety viewpoint than one of fare evasion. It is not funny, it is not clever and it won’t be tolerated.”

Robb said that GO GEORGE works closely together with law enforcers to prevent individuals to put their own lives and those of others at risk in this way, and called upon the public to let them know about any such or similar incidents directly, and immediately.

“Our Call Centre is manned from 06:00 till 21:00 daily, and will notify the relevant operational units of such situations immediately so that we can take action while it is happening. So next time, please call 0800 044 044 first, and only then post the photo, if you must!”

  • GO GEORGE also emphasizes the importance of never walking behind a bus, but to walk past it or cross the street in front of the bus.

GO GEORGE het met skok kennis geneem van die foto op sosiale media van ‘n passasier wat gratis saamry op die agterbuffer van ‘n bus. Hierdie gedrag is geheel en al onaanvaarbaar en uiters gevaarlik, nie net vir die sondebok nie, maar ook vir ander padgebruikers indien hy in die verkeer van die bus af sou val.

“Die veiligheid van al ons passasiers is ons prioriteit,” het James Robb, GO GEORGE-bestuurder, na die voorval gesê. “Ons veroordeel hierdie gedrag ten sterkste, baie meer vanuit ‘n veiligheidsoogpunt as een van koste-ontduiking. Dit is nie snaaks nie, dit is nie slim nie, en sal nie verdra word nie.”

Robb sê GO GEORGE werk nou saam met wetstoepassers om te voorkom dat individue hul eie lewens sowel as ander mense s’n op die spel plaas, en doen ‘n beroep op die publiek om hulle direk en dadelik te laat weet van enige sulke of soortgelyke voorvalle.

“Ons inbelsentrum word daagliks van 06:00 tot 21:00 beman en sal die relevante bedryfseenheid onmiddellik laat weet van sodanige situasies sodat ons kan optree terwyl dit gebeur. So skakel 0800 044 044 heel eerste, asseblief, en pos daarna die foto, as jy moet!”

  • GO GEORGE beklemtoon ook die belangrikheid daarvan om nooit agterom ‘n bus te loop nie, maar om verby die bus of oor die straat te loop aan die voorkant van die bus.
