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. Annually, close to 14 000 deaths are recorded each year and thousands more are injured as a result of road traffic crashes in South Africa.Read more...

SADD (South Africans Against Drunk Driving) partnered with 3 schools in the Greater Pietermaritzburg areas for Long Short Walks, as part of United Nations Global Road Safety Week.
At Imvunulo Senior School we worked with the US Consulate in Durban and in addition to our walk the learners were provided with T shirts and reflective backpacks.
IMPERIAL is setting out to change the lives of thousands of school children through its Scholar Patrol Improvement Project. At a rate of 20 schools per month, IMPERIAL will not only train learners and teachers in the basics of road safety, it will refurbish zebra crossings and supply scholar patrol visibility bibs and equipment. This is just another way we are making South Africa's roads safer, especially for those most vulnerable – our children.
