DURBAN, South Africa - The QuadPara Association of South Africa has launched its "Buckle up" road-safety campaign to encourage safe driving during the Easter holidays.

A total of 40 quadriplegic and paraplegic members, mosty victims of crashes, will be deployed at eight garages on national roads. The campaign hopes to educate drivers on the perils of not wearing a seat belt and members will wear bibs identifying them as campaigners.

Drivers will be asked to sign a pledge and will receive a special sticker in return. The Road Accident Fund, Avis and Cannonball Run will sponsor the campaign.


The QASA association said its members will engage and encourage drivers to wear their seat belts and believe that the face-to-face interaction will have a lasting impact.

The QASA Association provides opportunities for quadriplegics and paraplegics offering training such as:

 • Skills development
 • Computer training
 • Assisting devices and mobility aids
 • Driver training
 • Education bursaries
 • Sports activity bursaries
 • Employment opportunities

The campaign will also serve to encourage drivers not to use their cellphones while driving.
