Safely Home Road Safety Workshop | Western Cape Government


Safely Home Road Safety Workshop

27 October 2014

Safely Home, Childsafe and Sanral will host a road safety workshop on 30 October 2014 on Pedestrian Awareness and Pay Day Weekends at Sanral’s Provincial Headquarters in Oakdale.

The workshop is aimed at promoting road safety awareness amongst influential people who can help influence positive behaviour change on Western Cape roads.

Safely Home’s focus in November is on the high number of pedestrians killed in South Africa and in the Western Cape. To date, no fewer than 448 pedestrians have been killed on Western Cape roads in 2014.

Safely Home will also be looking at the road trauma peaks experienced on pay day weekends, the phenomenon called the Pay Day Blues.
