, Midrand South Africa (PressExposure) July 01, 2009 -- The 2010 World Cup is the biggest event that South Africa has ever hosted. With transportation in the forefront of everyone's mind, luxury car rental is at a premium right now. Security and efficient travel go hand in hand, especially if you or your entourage are visiting a country which has a dubious security record. Although the South African government is doing everything within its power to ensure the safety of its sports fans, to truly ensure your safety in this turbulent country, why not consider armoured car rental, chosen from our extensive list of luxury vehicles?
Keen to show the rest of the world that South Africa has indeed conquered the trials and tribulations of the past, the South African government has implemented a few key measures to make the routes to and from the stadiums safe for all who travel in this country.
â¢ 41 000 officers for the event
The government has added an extra 41 000 police officers to the already extensive South African Police Service. 30 000 police officers will circulate the various host cities and stadiums, designed to keep a sphere of security at all times.
â¢ SAPS high-tech equipment
The SAPS now have the most high-tech equipment available, including flack jackets, water canons, bomb disposal units, and 100 new BMW's for route patrols.
â¢ Simulated exercises
The three major security teams in South Africa, the police service, defence force and air force, took part in a joint operational exercise to prepare for any eventuality. This included simulated exercises such as nuclear and radioactive threats, chemical and biological accidents and attacks, as well as air and maritime coordinated exercises.
â¢ Pilatus PC-12 light aircraft
Four of these light aircraft have been bought especially for the soccer event. Each airplane is fitted with a camera which beams down live footage of the event to officers on the ground. The government has bought manned and un-manned surveillance aircraft to ensure your safety at the event and en-route.
â¢ Upgraded road system
Car rental in South Africa is now easier than ever, with a newly upgraded road system. Everywhere you turn in the country, road works are being completed at lighting speed. The routes to and from the stadiums will be safe, efficient and easy to negotiate with traffic police working in conjunction with the SAPS.
However, if this extensive list of upgrades and security measures does not satisfy your safety concerns, why not invest in a truly safe vehicle to ferry your entourage and yourself around the city? During the soccer world cup, fans from all over the world will congregate in South Africa, making for a confusing and dangerous time. Negotiate the roads in style and in safety with our armoured car rentals, available from Status Luxury Vehicles.
