1000 schools & over 1 million learners celebrated in Transport Month!
Imperial Road Safety in partnership with the Department of Basic Education, today announced that its Safe Scholars Programme has reached its 1000th school and has educated over 1 million learners around safe road usage. This programme, sanctioned by the Department of Basic Education (DoBE), aims at generating awareness around road safety for learner pedestrians in need of an outreach programme. It teaches them the fundamentals of safe road practices and provides them with reflective sashes which, thanks to the DoBE, has been made a mandatory part of these children's school uniform.
Says Baba Malaka, Assistant Director at the Department of Basic Education: "We are very proud of the headway this programme has made and believe that, through collaboration with companies such as Imperial, we are able to witness even further growth in this programme – one that is a fundamental pillar to enhanced road safety for our future leaders."
The Safe Scholars programme is an extension of Imperial Road Safety's Scholar Patrol Improvement Project. Safe Scholars, which had set out to reach 300 schools and a quarter of a million students since inception in 2015, has today witnessed more than quadruple this figure with 1039 schools, 1 026 985 learners, as well as the distribution of 47 850 sashes.Read more...

The Safe Routes to School programme follows a multi-stakeholder approach and will use the same methodology as the programme that was implemented in schools in the Cape Town Metropolitan Council which was also funded by the FIA Foundation.
The eThekwini Safe to School project is a Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP) Programme that has already been implemented internationally, in countries such as China and Vietnam. The pilot programme is aimed at replicating the international project framework and evaluating its impacts in the South African context. The programme recommends a range of actions that are complementary and focused on effective outcomes. These actions include:
• installing low-cost engineering treatments to improve children's safety
• providing visible enforcement by traffic police or others
• educating children and their parents about road safety issues
• getting publicity about the programme and activities.Read more...
The Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP) and its partners will be working together to bring to the African continent Africa Road Safety 2016, 31 Oct - 2 Nov, in Durban, South Africa. This comprehensive capability building conference, our 5th annual event in Africa, will provide delegates with a range of stimulating capability building workshops, keynote addresses, high level panel discussions and plenary sessions over two full days with an invitational event for private sector organizations on day three.
