About Us

Safely Home is the road safety campaign of the Western Cape Government.

The World Health “World Report on Road Traffic Injury” speaks about six recommendations that countries should follow to improve their road safety records and save lives.

It is on the basis of these recommendations that the Western Cape Government appointed the Department of Transport and Public Works to implement the Safely Home Programme.

The Western Cape Government’s Safely Home Programme, led by Robin Carlisle, Minister for Transport and Public Works is aimed at reducing the number of people killed on the province’s road by 50% by the end of 2014.

Safely Home is based on the four E's of road safety recognised as international best practice by the United Nations.

  • Enforcement
  • Education
  • Engineering
  • Evaluation

Safely Home recognises that South Africa in general and the Western Cape in particular have among the most dangerous roads in the world and strives to fulfill the UN Decade of Action’s goals to reduce road carnage.
