A new specialised unit to be established to curb road deaths
13 January 2011
The Road Traffic Management Corporation is planning on establishing a new specialised unit to curb the road deaths in the country.
Acting chief executive of the corporation, Collins Letsoale, says the unit will especially be focused on areas where the most road deaths are recorded.
The unit which will be established will be known as the National Traffic Law Enforcement Unit.
The Road Traffic Management Corporation wants the unit to help to increase police visibility on the roads, and help to curb the death toll on the country's roads.
In the festive season in South Africa around one-thousand-five-hundred people died in road accidents.
