be careful of hijackings using the stone-throwing modus operandi

January 30, 2014 in Newsletter

Johannesburg – Four people were killed in an accident on the Golden Highway’s N12 off-ramp, Johannesburg emergency services said.

The accident happened on Friday (17/01) afternoon as police were on the road, clearing rocks, spokesperson Synock Matobako said.

“The rocks had been thrown onto the freeway by criminals. They stand on top of the bridge, throwing rocks at passing cars. When you stop, they hijack your car,” said Matobako.

He said the driver of the Opel Astra hit a rock which was still on the road.

“He swerved and got onto oncoming traffic, hitting a Toyota Yaris.”

The driver of the Yaris, who was travelling alone, was instantly killed.
There had been four occupants in the Astra.

“Two of the occupants, including the driver died on the scene. A third person died in hospital while the fourth passenger was admitted to the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital. He is in a critical condition.”

Matobako warned motorists to be careful of the Golden Highway area as police had claimed that several motorists had been victims of the hijackings using the stone-throwing modus operandi.
“It is a very dangerous area. It’s a hotspot. If you stop after getting hit by a rock, you will be hijacked,” he said.

Tyre Expiry and Tyre Safety

July 19, 2013 in Newsletter

Tyre Expiry and Tyre Safety

Vehicle tires have a 4-year validity period from their Date of Manufacture (DOM). Thereafter, the tire expires and may burst whilst in use. How to find out whether your tire has expired? Check for a

stamp like this: (*2603*) There is an asterisk at the beginning and at the end of this serial number.

The first two numbers 2 6 will tell which week of the year has it been manufactured.

NB: One year has 52 weeks. The last two numbers represent the year of make. Therefore, *2603*

tyre safety

shows that the said tire is manufactured in the 26th week of the year 2003. *2699* this shows that the tire is made in the 26th week of 1999.Check all your tires for safety purposes. Do not use expired tires. They are likely to burst (especially when running in hot weather) because the rubber component may have hardened and cracked.

Tire Safety

Studies of tire safety show that maintaining proper tire

pressure, observing tire and vehicle load limits,and inspecting

tires for cuts, slashes, and other irregularities are the most

important things you can do to avoid tire failure, such as

tread separation or blowout and flat tires. These actions,

along with other care and maintenance activities, can also:

–          Improve vehicle handling

–          Help protect you and others from avoidable breakdowns

–          and accidents

–          Improve fuel economy

–          Increase the life of your tires.

Ministry of Finance warns of fake facebook accounts

Ministry of Finance warns of fake facebook accounts

MINISTRY OF FINANCE WARNS OF FAKE FACEBOOK ACCOUNTS AND OTHER SCAMS

The Ministry of Finance would like to warn the public about a number of Facebook accounts which purport to be those of the Minister of Finance. These fake accounts are the latest attempt to con the public, both in South African and abroad, of their hard-earned money.

Last year, the Ministry warned the public about bogus letters or emails which purported to be from his office and those of other senior public officials.

The Ministry condemns the use of the Minister’s name and photographs, and reiterates that such scams can only succeed to the extent that members of the public have an unquenchable thirst for easy wealth.

Electricity Saving Campaign, Safety inside your home

July 17, 2013 in Newsletter

Electricity Saving Campaign, Safety inside your home

Before considering ways and means of reducing your electricity account one should first consider the cost of operating the various types of domestic appliances.

The following table details the average cost of electricity consumed by the various electrical appliances used in the home. (kWh cost is based on 44.39 average)

Safety inside your home

  • Your installation must meet the required safety standards. If you do not have a certificate of compliance, engage a qualified electrical contractor to inspect and test your installation and give you a certificate.
  • Don’t overload plug points, particularly where multiple socket extensions are used. The total load on any socket (plug) should not exceed 16 amps (or 3 kW). How many plugs on one socket?
  • Disconnect electrical appliances from the plug point before working on the appliance.
  • Use electrical appliances only for the purpose for which they are intended, eg. don’t hang damp clothing over heaters to dry, don’t use stoves to heat rooms, etc.
  • Don’t touch electrical appliances while in the bath, eg. hairdryers.
  • Ensure that all appliances have a plug on the cord. Don’t stick bare wires into the socket outlet.
  • Don’t interfere with the electrical wiring installation.
  • Protect your installation with an earth leakage unit.
  • If the earth leakage or any circuit breaker trips, don’t bypass it. It has tripped because it has detected an unsafe or dangerous condition. If you cannot reset the earth leakage after it has tripped, unplug all appliances, double adaptors and extension cords (don’t just switch off). Reset the earth leakage. If it still trips, switch off all circuit breakers, reset the earth leakage and switch on the circuit breakers one at a time until the faulty circuit is identified. Call an electrical contractor to rectify the fault.
  • Ensure that the electricity contractor issues you with a certificate of compliance (COC).
  • Make sure all plugs are correctly wired, ie. when looking at the top of the opened plug, the green and yellow (earth) wire goes into the top pin (large pin), the brown (live) wire into the right pin (marked “L” or with a brown colour) and the blue (neutral) wire into the left pin (marked “N” or with a blue colour).
