Suzette Ludeke, a police woman based in Port Elizabeth traffic department, discovered that a petrol attendant had been left with a massive bill after a customer drove off without paying.
Since the recent hike in the price of petrol "drive-offs" have increased, this is when people drive off without settling their bill which leaves the bill with the petrol station and the attendants.
Next month the price of petrol is predicted to increase to R16 a litre which would set a new record for fuel prices in South Africa.

“Unfortunately it’s life, even if you work as a cashier and you are short, it is your responsibility. Its humans who are doing this to one another, it’s humans who have no compassion to other’s feelings,” Suzette explains.
A petrol attendant, Patrick, was recently the victim of one of a "drive-off" leaving him with a bill of almost R1000 which is an enormous amount for a petrol attendant and an expecting father.
Patrick approached Suzette in the hope that she would be able to track down the driver using his registration number. Suzette decided to go one further and actually raise the amount needed for Patrick to settle the bill.
Her small act of kindness snowballed and she was able to raise over R4000 which was used to settle the bill and buy Patrick a baby hamper.
