School learners receive mobile traffic training centres

16 June 2016 | Road Safety in the Media


In a continued effort to improve road safety among young people in this Youth month, the Road Safety Directorate will be rolling out Mobile Junior Traffic Training Centres.

The Mobile Junior Traffic Training Centre is a miniature traffic environment that will be designed on school premises to teach school pupils to obey traffic laws.

These centres provide a safe environment to expose pupils to a traffic environment so that they can be able to master real-life road rules.

On Monday, the Directorate handed over one mobile centre to the Ladysmith Regional Office, to showcase at schools around the region.

“We are trying to enhance our existing programmes such as the Learner in Traffic, Road Safety Talks, Road Safety Debates and Scholar patrol projects. This is in order to adequately prepare learners to cope in the traffic environment, practice in a simulated traffic environment without exposure to life threatening traffic hazards is important. The Mobile Junior Traffic Training Centres provide a safe environment whereby learners can be taught basic road safety skills,” said Marlini Pillay who is the Deputy Director for Road Safety Education based at Head Office.

The project will be rolled-out at primary school level and will be facilitated by Road Safety Officers who are required to provide opportunities for learners to practice their road safety skills in preparation for the formal assessment at the end of the project cycle.
