Road safety: a shared responsibility for all of us
While the recently released road traffic crash statistics for the 2014-2015 festive season show a marginal decline from the corresponding figures of the 2013-2014 season, they still make for grim reading. According to the figures released by Minister Dipuo Peters on 9 January 2015, during the festive period spanning 1 December 2014 to 5 January 2015; a total of 1,118 fatal crashes with 1,368 fatalities were registered. The comparable figures for the same period in 2013-2014 were 1,147 and 1,376. This indicates a marginal decline of 2.5% and 0.6% for fatal crashes and fatalities respectively. Clearly the message is not getting across to our road users and judging by some early responses from the media, these figures seem to have resulted in some questioning the whole point of releasing similar figures year after year and whether the authorities are doing enough in order to curb the scourge of road traffic crashes. This is quite understandable and reveals a deep sense of frustration with the lack of progress in attempts to improve our appalling road safety record.Read more...
