BACK TO SCHOOL LEARNER TRANSPORT CAMPAIGN
The school learner transport safety campaign run by the EMPD Social Crime Prevention Unit officers were in KwaThema this week visitingQedusizi and Fred Habedi primary schools to educate staff and learners on school learner transport safety.
With the high number of pedestrian-vehicle accidents in past weeks, the EMPD saw the need to create awareness. The aim is to teach children how to approach road traffic signals and cross the roadway safely. Campaigns of this nature will assist to curb the number of road fatalities and help keep communities safe.
Furthermore, members conducted law enforcement in front of the schools to ensure motorists and vehicles are in compliance with the National Road Traffic Act (93/1996) and a number of written notices were issued to non-complying offenders.
The EMPD urges motorists to ensure that their vehicles are roadworthy, and that they always exercise caution on roadways.
