Quotes

"The figures for this past Easter long weekend indicate that our efforts in law enforcement are yielding some positive outcomes."
"The report was compiled by the police, evaluated by the RTMC [Road Traffic Management Corporation], and verified by provincial heads of department ..."
...Mchunu said while the decrease in the number of crashes and people's lives lost was a good sign, he was still very concerned that it remained high. "With fatalities standing at 30, we lost six fewer lives than last year when we lost 36 people from 35 crashes. This is not acceptable, because one life lost is one too many."
"To reduce road fatalities by half, we cannot do this alone, we need our people. We appeal to motorists, passengers and pedestrians alike to be vigilant on our roads. Let's take responsibility to ensure we prevent further [accidents]" she said
