Government, business and civil society - working together to save lives



Africa Road Safety Day

The Global Road Safety Partnership South Africa (GRSP ZA) would like to acknowledge the victims and families of road safety crashes and fatalities on this global observance day - November 18th, 2012.   In South Africa, the top two contributors to child deaths are motor crashes and pedestrian fatalities which, can be attributed mainly to reckless driving.  These devastating figures relates to excessive driving speeds; dangerous, reckless and inconsiderate driving; alcohol abuse by drivers and pedestrians; fatigue; non-road worthy vehicles and pedestrian negligence related to illegal road usage; visibility and intoxication, leading to an unacceptably high rate of fatalities that are can be prevented.  

In our mission to reduce road safety crashes and fatalities, the Global Road Safety Partnership in South Africa will continue to support road safety initiatives that are led by government.  We will continue to develop good practice supported by credible research and evaluation, and wherever possible work with the full might of our members to initiate and sustain these programmes, through government partnership.

The Global Road Safety Partnership South Africa is a member of the Decade for Action whose main goal is to prevent five million road traffic deaths globally by 2020. 

We ask all South Africans to come together to hold ceremonies or services to remember the victims, their families, volunteers, emergency response teams, medical staff and road safety officials.  Let us all commit to work together to reduce these unnecessary and preventable deaths and injuries.
