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 Physical Sciences subject advisors of the Northern Cape Department of Education recently attended a three-day workshop at the UFS Main Campus where the new Grade 12 subject content was discussed. Lecturers from the Departments of Chemistry and Physics at the UFS were also involved in the training sessions. Similar training sessions for 100 Physical Sciences teachers in the Northern Cape will soon take place in Kimberley and Springbok.
