ROAD SAFETY CARTOONS
Over the past few years many cartoons have highlighted the problems facing road safety in South Africa. These cartoons tell a story of the hazards on South African roads and can be used effectively to provide further education on road safety statistics as well as advice / tips on how to combat these dangers.
Fred Mouton from “Die Burger Newspaper” has kindly provided some of these drawings - and the development team of www.arrivealive.co.za will be adding some more of these to the web site for the benefit of the younger generation and educators.
