                        GENERAL STATISTICS ON ROAD SAFETY / CRASH STATISTICS

                        The Road Traffic Management Corporation has published their first comprehensive statistical analysis of road traffic management incidents in June 2005 
                         
                        The following road safety and crash statistics provide insight with regards to the threats to road safety in South Africa:

                        • It is estimated that the cost of traffic crashes to individuals, commerce, communities and the country is in the region of R38 billion annually.
                        • Every day an average of 36 lives are lost. Of these 15 are pedestrians, and 3 are killed in taxi-related incidents.
                        • Around 20 people are permanently disabled on our roads every day.
                        • More than 7000 people are left maimed each year by poor attitude and behavior on our roads.
                        • Around 100 people are seriously injured on our roads each day.
                        • More than 90% of crashes are due to lawlessness. Pedestrian and driver negligence and ignorance have a huge cost, both financially and in human suffering.
