SAFETY FIRST: Moira Winslow has been credited with taking road safety education to parts of South Africa often inaccessible to government agencies..

Moira Winslow, the ailing 80-year-old founder of road safety awareness organisation Drive Alive!, has hung up her high-visibility gear ahead of departing to the UK to be with her family.

Drive Alive! was officially formed in 1989 as a non-profit road-safety organisation after Winslow’s daughter, son and two grandchildren were killed in a car crash in 1985.

The programme, headed by Winslow for 22 years, was chosen as the No.1 project by the Global Road Safety Partnership under the auspices of the World Bank in 2000. Additionally, the Drive Alive! pedestrian visibility campaign educates the public while also using theatre, via the Drive Alive! Drama Group, to deliver key safety messages.


Transport minister Sibusiso Ndebele paid tribute to Winslow as well, saying “during this Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020, we need more people of Moira's calibre to join the global movement against road crashes to end the carnage on our roads.”

Winslow will leave for the UK on December 3, 2011.
