The number of pedestrian fatalities in South Africa is a very disturbing statistic. In 2008, 5 272 pedestrians (0,01% of the population) were killed simply attempting to cross the road or to use a pedestrian walkway. At least 50% of fatalities were people between the ages of 20 and 54. These people were of prime working age, with families to support, whose principal means of income generation was skilled labour. There is every reason to do more to end preventable fatalities in this age group.
