South Africa ended the year on a high with a 10% drop in road fatality rates during the 2017/18 festive season. Unfortunately, this achievement was not shared during the Easter period which saw a 14% increase with 510 deaths recorded from March 29 to April 9, 2018.


According to the Transport Minister, Blade Nzimande, there were a number of arrests over the same period which suggests that South African drivers are still indulging in dangerous driving behaviours. 

More than 6000 drivers were caught speeding, 3208 were driving unlicensed vehicles, 2344 were not wearing seatbelts and more than 1600 were driving vehicles with worn tyres.
