In an effort to continuously reduce road crashes involving stray animals, the North West Department of Community Safety and Transport Management has set aside a budget of R1.7 million to implement the Road Safety Rangers Programme in the 2019/20 financial year.

During his budget speech presentation, the Departmental MEC Sello Lehari announced that seventy (70) Road Safety Rangers have been contracted by the Department to patrol identified hotspots and hazardous roads across the Province including Mahikeng, JB Marks, Greater Taung, Matlosana and Moses Kotane Municipalities.

“We have attempted to reduce a number of road crashes involving stray animals and, in the same breadth create employment within identified communities” Lehari said.

“We will continue to create a safe and secure environment for all the people in the Province, we must ensure that we prevent and combat crime that may threaten the safety and security of our communities, and promote road safety on our roads” Lehari concluded.
