Welcome to Drive More Safely, where Road Safety is our focus!

Death on the road does not only affect the economy, it has a devastating effect on the family of a road crash victim. It has a lifelong hurt and emptiness that never leaves the family.

Road safety is NOT the responsibility of government. It is YOUR responsibility.

It is you

  • that is behind the controls of your vehicle:
  • that makes the choice of whether to use your cellphone whilst driving,
  • that makes the choice to speed or overtake on a solid line; and
  • the most dangerous is, it is you that took the  “one for the road” and killed someone.

Harsh you say………yes it is harsh, because every day a family is left with a permanent reminder of a crash that changed their lives forever.

Drive More Safely can train road users,; we can educate road users; but unfortunately we cannot change their attitude – this is the reason for the devastation on our roads.

Our pledge is to:

  • Educate
  • Empower
  • Train road users.

Objectives

  • To provide road safety education and training through programs, campaigns, training sessions and literature
  • To collaborate with other organisations that mainly deal with road safety and education
  • To engage with government
  • To advocate, on a responsible basis, for better road safety measures
  • To be active and responsible road safety activists for better roads for all

Drive More Safely is a registered NPO where your safety on the road matters the most.
