The Transport and Public Works MEC Marius Fransman and Community Safety MEC Leonard Ramatlakane launched the Western Cape Arrive Alive Safer Easter Season 2008 on Wednesday.
“We know that this period is one of those busy periods on our calendar,” says Eric Ntabazalila, spokesperson for MEC Fransman.

He added that the project launches on the same day as the tragic accident that claimed two lives on the N1 during morning rush hour, when a truck over turned and landed on top of a car.

“As government we want to send our condolences to the families of the two ladies. But what we want to say is that we will be increasing our vigilance on the roads, starting today,” says Ntabzalila.

Both departments are appealing to motorists who are driving this weekend not to speed and to stay within the speed limits, wear seatbelts and make sure that cars are roadworthy before heading out.
