Since 2005, the OUTsurance Pointsmen Project has helped to alleviate traffic congestion, contributed towards road safety and created job opportunities for underprivileged communities.
There are two types of pointsmen. Static pointsmen are assigned to specific high-traffic intersections, while mobile pointsmen are dispatched to traffic hot spots at a moment’s notice.
These men and women are truly passionate about making your daily commute as stress-free as possible – you’ll recognise them by their bright-yellow bibs, toothy grins and friendly demeanour!
The Pointsmen Project is currently active in Tshwane, as the result of a great partnership with the city.
Are you wondering how the pointsmen make a difference on South African roads every day? Perhaps you’d like to know how many pointsmen work within your city? With an initiative that touches so many lives, we’d like to answer any questions you might have.
