SOUTH Africans Against Drunk Drivers (SADD) has asked people to sign a pledge to help promote road safety.

Caro Smit, of SADD, said the UN Global Road Safety Week this year is dedicated to child road safety.

“The campaign #SaveKidsLives is calling for a global effort to raise awareness of poor child road safety worldwide and to bring political action to change this.”

She said SADD is one of only 10 NGOs worldwide to be funded by the World Bank and WHO for this campaign, and will work with schools around PMB.

“Children in #SaveKidsLives T-shirts, decked in yellow, will be recording their worries, experiences and solutions to our road traffic problems, and putting on plays and songs for the dignitaries who will hopefully listen to their messages.

“This project is about getting children involved and do their own filming and signing the pledges. SADD will get then get these messages and clips to the politicians and media.”

She appealed to businesses and schools to contribute to SADD and/or “go yellow”, hang up banners or wrap trees (with the logo displayed in permanent marker or paint) and to sign the pledge at www.savekidslives 2015.org - Supplied
