Abstract

The role of Christian values and education in Traffic Safety Education

Traffic safety is one of the more important issues in South Africa today, since traffic accidents cause thousands o f unnecessary deaths each year, particularly among the youth. The key variable of traffic safety is to be found in principled education emphasizing religious and life values. A child need to learn that life, also his/her own, is sacred to God and must be safeguarded by following traffic safety rules and regulations. Since traffic safety is dependent on, inter alia, attitudes and religious-cultural values, children must be taught positive attitudes at home and at school. This point o f departure implies that teachers need to have positive attitudes towards Traffic Safety Education, which, in turn, implies Traffic Safety Education as a prerequisite fo r teacher education.
