Sasol and Limpopo Government embark on Easter road-safety and road assistance

07 April 2006

Sasol and the Limpopo Government today launched their annual road-side safety and assistance campaign. This is geared to assist thousands of motorists travelling along the R71 highway this Easter.

This is the 12th year that Sasol is offering road-side assistance to people who set off on the religious pilgrimage to Moria in Limpopo during the Easter period.
“We are concerned about the safety of our motorists and we encourage them to check that their vehicles are roadworthy before embarking on long journeys. We urge all drivers to obey road rules, be alert and respect the rights of other commuters and pedestrians,” says Maurice Radebe, managing director of Sasol Oil Fuel Marketing.
A recent roads assessment project conducted on the R71 road noted a marked increase in pedestrian deaths, mainly as a result of poor visibility in the evenings. As a result, street lights have been erected at specific points along the road.
“We are pleased to launch the Easter road patrol and will mark the occasion with a special candle lighting ceremony to commemorate all victims of road accidents. We are also grateful to the South African Council of Churches and other religious organisations for their support in encouraging people to think and act safely on our roads,” says Limpopo MEC of Roads and Transport, Stan Motimele.
Motimele also urges road users to be on the lookout for Sasol mechanics that will assist stranded motorists on the R101, R71, N1, R33 and in Mokopane from 10-17 April.
The Sasol taxi marketing team, supported by qualified mechanics, will patrol these routes in Sasol branded cars, and along with official vehicles of the Limpopo Department of Roads and Transport will assist motorists with vehicle breakdowns and other minor mechanical problems. The team will carry basic spare parts. Motorists will also be informed about Sasol turbofuelsTM and lubricants.
Sasol Oil Fuels Marketing, Limpopo Tourism and Parks Board and the Limpopo Department of Roads and Transport wish you a safe trip.

Forward-looking statements: Sasol may, in this document, make certain statements that are not historical facts and relate to analyses and other information which are based on forecasts of future results and estimates of amounts not yet determinable. These statements may also relate to our future prospects, developments and business strategies. Examples of such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding exchange rate fluctuations, volume growth, increases in market share, total shareholder return and cost reductions. Words such as “believe”, “anticipate”, “expect”, “intend”, “seek”, “will”, “plan”, “could”, “may”, “endeavour” and “project” and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements, but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, and there are risks that the predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will not be achieved. If one or more of these risks materialise, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated.
