Gauteng: Transport Minister, Dr. Bonginkosi Blade Nzimande, will be releasing the preliminary report on the 2018 Easter Road Safety Campaign on Tuesday, 17 April 2018 in Cape Town.

The Minister’s preliminary report will give an overview of joint multi-faceted law enforcement, education and awareness operations undertaken over the Easter period throughout the country and a comparison and analysis of the successes and shortcomings of the campaign.

Over 18 900 law-enforcement officers countrywide had been deployed through the Department and the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) over the long weekend particularly on hazardous routes to ensure the safety of road users.
