Don’t meet the wrong people by accident on the road this festive season

The Road Accident Fund (RAF) have launched their #AlwaysRemember initiative to encourage drivers across Mzansi to be safe on the roads this festive season.

RAF has joined forces with the dedicated men and women of South Africa’s emergency service agencies to urge road users this festive season to, “Please be careful on the roads; Let’s not meet by accident”. This follows a decision to take a unique approach to road safety by collaborating with tow truck drivers, police, medical staff, ambulance and fire personnel who are ready to serve over the holiday period.

However, these emergency workers together with RAF would rather not meet you wounded after a car crash, or recuperating from your injuries in a hospital bed – hence the message to #AlwaysRemember to be safe on our roads.

Road safety is a major concern year-round, but traffic volumes increase sharply over the summer holidays in South Africa.

The Road Accident Fund are looking for road-safety ambassadors this festive season. Do you think you have what it takes? Complete this survey and you could stand a chance to be rewarded with amazing prizes.

For more information, visit alwaysremember.org.za. Join the conversation on Twitter (@RAF_SA), Facebook (@RoadAccidentFund) and Instagram (@raf_road).

Please stay safe on the roads this festive season and encourage your loved ones, friends, family and followers on social media to drive with care.
