Twenty-seven million people use our roads daily, with the majority including workers and students on their daily commute. Safety on our roads is a discussion all South Africans should be having. Poor road and public transport infrastructure, lack of road safety education, and inadequate street lighting are among the causes of the accidents we see on our roads.

An alarming report from UCT’s Centre for Transport Studies reveals that 47 people are killed on our roads daily with that number climbing to 17 000 people annually. The report goes on to show that the main cause of child deaths in South Africa are a result of road accidents. We cannot simply ignore these statistics and must rally together to affect change and protect people on our roads.

Jonsson Workwear introduces its High Viz range of protective workwear that has been used to combat low-light conditions in a range of environments. Aware that poor visibility on the roads increases the number of accidents, the company together with The Jonsson Foundation is embarking on an initiative to protect all road users by increasing their visibility thereby reducing the risks of road accidents.
