SA urged to copy Australia's road safety strat to curb road deaths

The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) CEO, Dr Cleeve Robertson, says South Africa should learn from the Australian transport system to curb road deaths.

Robertson is the former head of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) in the Western Cape.

He says there is evidence that the Australian road safety strategy, which was reviewed recently, works.

The problem is that we don't have a consistent plan that is universally applied across the whole country.

Dr Cleeve Robertson, NSRI CEO

The Australian plan puts humans at the centre of the equation... and build the transport system around humans...

Dr Cleeve Robertson, NSRI CEO
