The Western Cape’s road death toll has decreased. The death toll for WC is 35 percent lower than last year.

Provincial Transport MEC Robin Carlisle says from hundred and fifty three for the first 20 days of December the toll has dropped to a hundred.The decrease covers all classes of road deaths except that of motor cycles which has gone up.

Carlisle says they are particularly happy with the decrease in the number of passenger deaths which has gone down by 60 percent. He added this directly relates to safety belt usage.

MEC Carlisle says campaigns aimed at encouraging motorists to buckle up and not speed are paying off.

Meanwhile The Road Traffic Management Corporation is expected to give an update on holiday season road deaths today.
