Take part in our school road safety project

Do you know of a primary school that would like to take part in our Transport Month road safety initiative?

702 and Rehana Moosajee Consulting are running a road safety initiative on Monday 27 October aimed at primary school learners.

We looking for 20 Grade 7 learners. We can accommodate 5 learners per school accompanied by 1 educator or other responsible adult.

Primary school learners from diverse backgrounds will take part in a session at 702 where they will learn about road safety and receive training. They will then, in conjunction with the JMPD, monitor traffic intersections in the Sandton CBD.

Does your Primary School want to be part of this initiative. If so please mail your details to contact@702.co.za, together with a brief description of your school.

The learners would need to be available to take part on the programme at 702 in Sandown from 12:30 pm to 5:30 pm.

Rehana Moosajee speaks to Xolani Gwala about public transport and 702's road safety programme for school learners.

In 2011, the United Nations, dedicated not one day, one month or one year but one decade of action for road safety globally. For further details visit: www.decadeofaction.org

In excess of 14 000 lives are lost annually on South African roads. Despite this, road safety tends to have an Easter, Christmas focus when large numbers of people are travelling. Moreover, often media report about road crashes citing statistics without focusing on the human pain and suffering, economic impact and overall cost to society of road crashes. If a concerted and focused societal effort can be galvanized, countries have shown that lives lost in crashes can be reduced.
