The Road to Safety 2001- 2005

The “Road to Safety Strategy “ was launched November 2001 by the Minister of Transport at the time, Minister Dullah Omar.

  • The objective of the Strategy was to reduce crashes, deaths and injuries on South Africa’s roads by 5% year-on-year until the year 2005
  • The plan has set out a plan of action, and identified key deliverables, which should have ensured timeous delivery on the commitments made in the strategy.
  • Four key thematic areas, namely traffic law enforcement and law compliance; operator, vehicle and driver fitness; infrastructure, management and information systems; and communication, public education and participation were defined as areas of action.

Nine project teams were identified to ensure that the Road to Safety Strategy is implemented, namely

  • Arrive Alive
  • Driver Fitness
  • Vehicle Safety
  • Pedestrian Safety
  • Fraud and Corruption
  • Traffic Information Systems
  • Fleet Operations Management
