Non-approved petrol containers should not be allowed

I was recently at a petrol filling station where I saw an attendant filling a large water container with gasoline on behalf of a customer.

I was alarmed by the use of a non-approved petrol container, and that it was even allowed in the first place.

Such a practice poses serious hazards, especially in the event where the driver or the passenger decides to light up in the car and there’s a leak in the container. It could potentially lead to an explosion, resulting in serious injuries.

I hope to see more awareness on the importance of using a proper container for petrol storage.
