“We can choose to drive safely and make wise decisions when it comes to road safety or we can make poor decisions and risk our own life and the lives of other road users.

“We urge all drivers to make the right choice, to make the right decision.

“Please do not ever endanger yourself and/or others. One poor decision made in relation to safety on the roads could lead to a lifetime of regret and pain.”
