The Western Cape Government on Tuesday said
several of its interventions concerning road safety have continued to yield
Since 2009 the provincial death rate on the
roads has decrease by 30%. During December 2013 and January 2014, 221 people
tragically lost their lives during this period in the province.
Western Cape Department of Transport and
Public Works Ministerial Spokesperson Siphesihle Dube said this decrease is
because of the 24 hour traffic services that we have in the province.
Dube said year-on-year, we continue to see
the deaths on the Province’s roads decrease and are confident that through our
continued efforts, this trend will no doubt continue with less and less lives
being lost so senselessly on the roads.
“While the numbers are still high,
especially pedestrian deaths, the trend is downward and moving in the right
direction” Dube added.
