Multiple organisations join hands to raise road safety awareness on the corner Bremer and Van Der Hoff road, west of Pretoria.

The vigil started on Saturday morning and ended on Sunday afternoon.

Educational pamphlets about the importance of keeping safe of the roads  were handed out to the community.

The Best care ambulance service, the SAPS and the Emergency support team dedicated the initiative to the people who had died in road accidents in the area this year.

White crosses were planted on street corners to remember the victims, said Best service spokesperson, Xander Loubser.

“One cross was dedicated to 20 year old Rian Brits who died last week in Zambezi,” he said.

Apart from Best care ambulance service, the SAPS and the Emergency support team, participants included  CPFs, Afri-forum, AA and the community.

“Van De Hoff is a high risk accident road from the Appies River through to Haartbeespoort dam, including Bremer street. That is why we decided to be on the corner,” said organiser and Emergency support team member Johan Cloete.

Cloete said the initiative was well received by motorists with some stopping to receive information and offer support.

The initiative also aimed to share the pain of families who will be without their loved ones this festive season.
