Road accidents in South Africa

In a matter of two days South African football lovers are mourning the death of two players to road accidents. The most publicised death of Gift Leremi who died on Monday and Black Leopards captain Fernando Matola who died in a car crash along with his wife and two children. Kick off reported that the accident took place on Sunday morning. This should highlight the importance of sticking to the speed limit, taking breaks and taking energy drinks when necessary. I wonder why arrive alive only release holiday statistics. Only last week on N1 to Pretoria I saw not less that four Accidents, those are the ones I saw and N1 is not the only busy road in Gauteng and the country as well. We only remember when we loose the young lives that road accidents are real and can happen to anyone… Remember the head line that shook the country “Young rugby players die in a car crash” that was after Nardus Wessels and Ashley Mapisa died in a car accident on their way from training. Lets hope the country is learning from these tragic lessons.
