Stop alcohol being sold at petrol stations in SA

BP and Pick n Pay Express have just started selling wine at a petrol station – and are planning to open many more in Gauteng and Western Cape. We need to stop this now! Making alcohol available at petrol stations sends the wrong message, especially as the government is looking at ways to tackle alcohol abuse.
South Africa's #DrinkDriving & #AlcoholAbuse is amongst the worst in the world. The impact on our citizens, our health system, our fiscus is enormous - think of the trauma caused by crashes, stabbings, Gender Based Violence, sexual abuse etc., for the person and the family left behind or having to cope with a disabled person.
As a Trauma Dr. said "This is completely irresponsible. It doesn't help to reduce the hours of alcohol availability and then make it freely available in possibly the most dangerous way you could think of."
BP and Pick n Pay Express you need to look at the social impact of your brand, and not just your contributions via your CSI projects. This sale of alcohol is obviously being done for profit and not our citizens good. We have more than enough outlets selling alcohol already.
We sign and say : Shame on you!
