The 2015 Tsantsabane Road safety awareness campaign was applauded by the mayor of Tsantsabane, Maria Daniels, when she emphasised the importance of safety for all road users.

Daniels delivered a speech during the launch of Kolomela mine, together with the local SAPS and traffic department.

They launched a road safety awareness campaign for employees and contractors during the festive season. The keynote address was delivered by Daniels.

She stated that road safety is important to all of us and that road users must consciously help to keep passengers, pedestrians and themselves safe.

According to the mayor, who emphasised on the message that “cellphones must fall for motorists and pedestrians”, more than 14 000 people die on the roads nationwide each year.

She urged the communities and stakeholders to continue making a commitment and be responsible as a nation to work together in taking Tsantsabane forward.

“Pledge your support for a safer Tsantsabane this festive season,” she emphasised.

Highlighting the purpose of the event, Col Saul Witbooi made a remark that the event is to come up with a plan of action on how to curb the bloodshed on their roads.

“The increase of fatalities and vehicle damages have serious impacts on our lives and those of the communities,” he said.

“I humbly plead that motorists and pedestrians alike should make sure that the decisions they take on the road are safe.

“At the end of the day, it is not only about your life, but the lives of others as well,” concluded Witbooi.
