About Our Organisation

Road Safety is our focus!

Road Safety? Why you may ask?

When Tommie Kloppers, eldest son of Alida, became one of these stats, Alida Jones started Drive More Safely. The horror of the scene never left her and she dedicated her life to road safety in a bid to bring down the accident rate. The aim of this organization is to educate and equip our road users to become safe and responsible through campaigns, educational literature, motivational talks and training programs.

Our Objectives:

  • To provide road education and training through to all communities
  • To collaborate with other organisations that mainly deal with road safety and education
  • To offer qualified and high quality learner-driver training to the underprivileged
