Focus on child road safety
During October the Department of Transport and Public Works will focus on child road safety.
This focus will includes road safety talks at schools and it will deal with seatbelt compliance, learner transport operations and scholar patrol audits and training.
“Comprehensive road safety education for children requires the involvement of traffic officers, parents, teachers and other adults in a community.
“Together, we can set a good example for children by consistently adhering to the rules of the road,” Provincial traffic chief,
Department of Transport and Public Works, Kenny Africa said in a press release.
This follows news that a total of 24 motorists were arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol during the past weekend. Three of them were arrested in Mossel Bay. Six motorists were arrested in the George service area, four in Vredenburg, three in Swellendam, two in Worcester, two in Caledon, two in Somerset West, one in Knysna, and one in Oudtshoorn.
