South Africa was rocked by the news report on Tuesday 14th October 2014 that a a shocking crash occurred on the N12 Alberton freeway. Four innocent people were killed and 57 or thereabouts, were injured.
The next morning at 8am the Honourable Minister of Transport, Ms D. Peters, announced that a lack of driver training was responsible for the road carnage.
SAIDI has the solutions to the lack of adequate and fully comprehensive driver training.
SAIDI has extensive plans for every driving instructor in South Africa to be trained to the highest possible standard, comparable to International standards, to suit South African conditions, provided we can secure an appointment with the Honourable Minister of Transport, Ms Dipuo Peters.
We are all geared to “train the trainers” to prepare a massive contingent of driving instructors to offer excellent driving instruction with exactly the same fully-comprehensive training, across the board, to meet the need of all the whole driving population in the country.
We believe there can be no compromise when it comes to road safety. This is a matter of life and death, when we consider the devastation just one driver can cause.
So we believe the time is over to stop talking about road safety.
SAIDI has workable solutions!
Now it is time to accept our God-given responsibility and to train the Nation’s drivers, to reduce the official road fatality statistics (an official average statistic of 14 000 people a year, which might feasibly actually be as high as 22 000 according to a highly-experienced practising paramedic), and get down to teaching the public new ways of protect themselves from becoming victims of other drivers’ bad driving.
We either train drivers comprehensively, covering defensive and advanced training techniques, or we don’t do it at all.
Our plan includes:
- Refresher course for experienced drivers, with insurance benefits;
- Understanding what affects drivers attitudes:
- Upgrading the defensive driving standards of all licenced drivers;
- Thorough and comprehensive learner’s licence training directly from the national road traffic act;
- New driver training;
- “finishing off” lessons;
- Per-primary school children;
- Primary school pupils;
- High school pupils;
- Foreigners and immigrants;
- Habitual offenders;
- People with disabilities, such as paraplegics and quadriplegics;
- Pregnant mothers, mothers with babies and children;
- Senior drivers; people who have suffered traumatic brain injuries, etc. etc.
and it provides many totally unexpected additional benefits to the community as a whole.
