Be a law-abiding road-rule citizen these holidays
Follow the rules of the road to be safe.

Road crashes are a major cause of deaths globally, and particularly during the March-April holidays in South Africa. Therefore, abiding by the rules of the road serves to curb the high number of fatalities and is highly recommended. We urge all staff and students to take caution on the roads to ensure a safe return to the campuses next term.

According to Arrive Alive, some of the leading accident causes include drunk driving, failure to wear seatbelts, driver inexperience, driver fatigue, distracted driving and walking, as well as bravado. Be sure to avoid this at all cost.

Obeying the rules of the road saves lives. In 2016, Arrive Alive partnered with the UFS BSafe Campaign to educate students on becoming more responsible drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. For more road safety tips, visit the Arrive Alive website here.

 The Off Campus Student Association (OCSA) recently held its first sports day with off-campus and residence students participating in a soccer tournament. The tournament was won by the off-campus team KPA, who was rewarded with an R2 000 cheque from Mr Rudi Buys, Dean of Students.

Bonolo Thebe, SRC member Sport, says the sports day brought students together and the organisation plans to host it annually. Sporting codes like netball, hockey and basketball will be added to the planned annual event.
