The Minister of Transport and Public Works, Donald Grant, Childsafe and Sanral invite you to attend a road safety workshop on Pedestrian Awareness and Pay Day Weekends. The workshop is aimed at promoting road safety awareness among influential people who can help influence positive behaviour change on Western Cape roads.
Our focus in November is on the high numbers of pedestrians being killed in South Africa and in the Province. To date, no fewer than 448 pedestrians have been killed on Western Cape roads in 2014. We will also be looking at the road trauma peaks experienced on pay day weekends, the phenomenon called the Pay Day Blues.
