- A traffic cop was applauded online after a photo was shared showing him cleaning a street after heavy rainfall
- The officer's small gesture helped motorists drive safely through a damaged part of the road
- South Africans were in awe of the officer who went the extra mile to ensure the safety of those driving on the roads
On Thursday, a man, Saso Mahloane, took to the #ImStaying Facebook page to share a story that proved not all traffic officers are bad.
Mahloane's post showed a traffic cop cleaning a street in Thaba Nchu to ensure that motorists did not hurt their cars while driving.
The post was captioned:
"A traffic officer from Thaba Nchu in the Free State was seen cleaning the road after we experienced heavy rainfall. He surely made it easy for #Stayers to drive through."
Mzansi social media users sang the traffic cop's praise in the comments, applauding him for his dedication to the badge.
Bright Radebe wrote:
"Give that man a Bell's. It's not about giving us fines, a good well raised kid."
Paola Harrison added:
"Thank you so much! Now, could this officer be in charge of all traffic officers in the country?"
Marthie Botha Ackermann said:
"Wow... Slowly but surely South Africa is going to be an amazing place to stay. Thank you sir for this good deed."
While the officer was busy trying to clean the road another fed-up South African came up with an unique way to warn motorist about a massive pothole.
Briefly.co.za reported on Wednesday that on a busy road in Durban, the unidentified person decided to plant a tree in a gaping pothole.
When life gives you lemons, just plant a lemon tree.
