Cape Town - The Western Cape Minister of Transport and Public Works, Donald Grant says the road death pandemic has reached alarming levels.

"Road injuries and death, in this province alone, cost the Western Cape economy an estimated R21-billion, with an even more staggering R306-billion cost to South Africa alone, due to the loss of some 17 000 people annually on our roads", says the MEC. 

"The continued loss of life on our roads robs this country of resources that could be directed at improving the delivery of essential services to many that need it."
