The Aftermath of the Easter Holidays.

Driving on the freeway on my way to work this morning and listening to the Arrive Alive jingle #SafeEaster2023 by the newly appointed, National Minister of Transport; Ms Lydia Sindisiwe Chikunga, l cannot help but applaud government’s efforts to conscientize road users on road safety measures.

We are back from the holidays and brokers are inundated by requests to process claims emanating from the different road accidents experienced over the long weekend. While this may be the case, over the years it has been proven that moving violations are the biggest causes of road crashes on national routes. Road users are therefore urged to take necessary precautions and make it their business to:

  • obey the speed limit
  • ensure vehicle and driver fitness
  • rest every 200km or every 2 hours
  • not overtake on barrier lines
  • buckle up, and
  • don’t drink and drive

As Maksure Risk Solutions, it is our mandate as your insurance broker, in the eventuality of an unfortunate road incident to assist the client at the accident scene, ensuring that they take the needed precautions, such as gathering all information from the 3rd party, taking images, contacting traffic officials. Our brokers will assist you in sending the correct claim forms that are to be filled in and double checking that all information has been supplied. Moreover, we also assist with submitting the claim form.

The holidays also lure criminals, as we note high incidents of house break-ins and smash-and-grab occurrences where items may be stolen and/or damaged. As your insurance broker, we assist in the primary steps such as; contacting local police officials to attend to the scene, taking images and an account of what is missing or damaged. We also assist in the receipt of replacement quotations and completion, as well submission of the claim forms.

”Don’t despair, as your number one broker we assure you that help is on the way”, Nono Ndlovu Corporate Affairs Specialist – Europe, Asia & Africa.
