Road Safety for Children

Children die on our roads everyday. Educating the younger generation must play an important part in saving these young lives.

The arrive alive web site will strive to make important road safety information available to children in an “easy to understand” format. The road safety character “Freddy” has been designed by the web development team to assist in distributing the road safety messages.

Freddy is a strong believer that the internet is an important medium to use in the creation of awareness. He believes that this process is a long term process and that educating the children about road safety will not only save lives - but will make the next generations’ better motorists. He believes that he is not the only person who can achieve these goals and that he needs to work in close co-operation with the government and especially the Department of Public Works, Road and Transport and the Department of Education.
