The provincial finals were held at Taung Task hotel in the Dr Ruth Segomotsi Mompati district municipality.
This year’s debate topic was SA is on Course to Achieve the Austainable Development Goal to reduce road Accidents by 50% by 2020.
The debate is an annual showcase where pupils from different schools debate and compete against each other to win the overall prize which is to represent their province at the nationals.
Speaking for the winners, Kealeboga Mogorosi from Tiger Kloof said it was within the ability of people to work together to make roads safe.
She said the main challenge was the behaviour of road users.
“When all road users abide by the rules of the road, when the roads are properly maintained, when we stop texting and driving, when we stop drunk driving and lastly when we always put our safety belts on, the 2020 decade of action is achievable,” Kealeboga said.
She said it was imperative for young people working with all stakeholders to reduce the carnage and injuries on the roads.
