JOHANNESBURG - The policing of South Africa's road laws is largely inefficient, according to a World Health Organisation (WHO) study reported in Beeld on Monday May 20, 2013.

The study found that South African traffic officials were lax in enforcing seat-belt laws and those pertaining to the safe restraint of children.

DRINKING AND DRIVING

Only 59% of drivers and seven percent of front passengers wore a seat belt, the newspaper reported.

Statistics for rear passengers were not supplied but a 2007 Road Traffic Management Corporation study reportedly found only eight percent buckled-up.

The study found that South African law enforcers scored badly when it came to drinking and driving - and only slightly better on the policing of speeding.

Beeld reported that, according to the Medical Research Council of SA, alcohol played a role in 55% of the country's road deaths.
