The Arrive Alive Campaign aims to decrease the number of lives lost on South African roads through raising public awareness of road safety concerns.Arive Alive logo

The Arrive Alive campaign whicch was launched in 2001, has become an important part of the Department of Transport and Public Works road safety projects and awareness efforts, especially during critical periods for road traffic management such as Easter and the December holidays.

The Campaign uses educational materials and road accident statistics to raise public awareness around the dangers of road accidents. The Arrive Alive website was inspired by the efforts worldwide to promote road safety and the need for public awareness.

On 2 March 2010 governments around the world took the historic decision to increase action to address the road safety crisis over the next ten years. The UN General Assembly resolution proclaiming a Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 (A/64/255) was tabled by the Government of the Russian Federation and cosponsored by more than 90 countries. The Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 aims to save lives by halting the increasing trends in road traffic deaths and injuries world-wide.
