SADD Feedback on the United Nations Road Safety Week 
The way forward
South Africa needs to change the laws, especially about implementing and enforcing 30km zones outside schools and in high pedestrians zones. In areas where deaths and injuries have occurred, speed humps need to be installed. You, as an individual, have power and can make a difference – so SADD ask you to highlight and insist on these changes from your municipality. Engaging other groups like schools, parents, councilors and the media will assist to achieve these life saving measures.

UN Road Safety Week – SADD Update 

SADD actively worked in 6 primary schools during the road safety week, and three other schools joined by hanging up banners and #SlowDown signs. We identified schools that had road safety needs, especially for slower speeds.

Woodlands Primary School

SADD met with each school and  their respective Principal to discuss their needs and buy-in to the program. Road safety material, including 3 road safety posters, a junior school manual were handed to the schools, as well as crayons and paper for them to do their road safety messages/poster. Road safety signs were erected, and some road markings were painted, or re-painted.

Caro Smit gave a presentation at each school discussing the UNGRSW #SlowDown program and how the children could assist to carry the message to their parents, educators and the community at large. Especially when they are wearing their T-Shirts or people make comments about the Love30 logo on the reflective strips on their school bags.
