An overall reduction of fatalities on South African roads over the Easter period and the good news is that KwaZulu-Natal reported the second biggest reduction.

Transport Minister Blade Nzimande said in a press briefing last week that there were 147 fewer deaths this year.  He added that the number of fatalities on the roads have decreased by 48%.

“From 309 in 2018 to 162 in 2019.  This marks a decrease of 147 in terms of fatalities”, Nzimande said. 

Over Easter, 192 drivers were arrested for speeding, and 807 for drunk driving. The highest recorded speed was in Gauteng, with a driver clocking 203km/h, followed by a Western Cape driver who was caught doing 202km/h.

“Although we have significantly reduced our crashes and fatalities on our roads, we can still do more to eradicate this calamity because one death is too many”, Nzimande said.
