ChildSafeSA calls for the implementation of a 30km/h speed restriction around schools.

The journey to school remains a challenge for most learners in South Africa. Children residing in lower-income communities are particularly vulnerable to injury or death due to the high rate of motor vehicle crashes on South African roads. According to the Road Traffic Management Corporation Report, 12 436 South Africans lost their lives in motor vehicle-related crashes in 2022. Death of children between 0 to 14 years accounts for 10,2% of those fatalities.
