Media Release from Global Road Safety Partnership South Africa (GRSP ZA)
The recently released road traffic crash statistics clearly indicate that more still needs to be done in order to curb the carnage on our roads. Admittedly, campaigns and programmes have been put in place by various sectors including; national and provincial government, business and NGOs. However, the figure of 1 376 fatalities as released by Minister Dipuo Peters on 9th January 2014 indicates that the number of road crashes is escalating. For instance, 937, 1 050, 1 358, 1 232 and 1 279 lives were lost in December 2009, December 2010, December 2011 and December 2012 respectively.
