Moira Winslow – A Woman Who Drove a Cause Above and Beyond

The Automobile Association would like to extend their well wishes and thanks to Moira Winslow, founder of Drive Alive.

Winslow (80) will leave South Africa on Saturday (3 December) to re-unite with her family in the United Kingdom due to ill-health.

“We are sad to see her go, especially after everything she has done towards road safety in our country,” says the AA. “Moira can be proud of the legacy she leaves us and also proving the difference one dedicated person can make in the lives of a nation.”

When Moira Winslow’s daughter, son and two grandchildren were tragically killed in a car accident in 1985, she started Drive Alive, a Road Safety awareness organisation. Drive Alive has been active in the previously disadvantaged school arena for the last 20 years and has made an invaluable contribution to creating Road Safety awareness amongst the South African community.

More than 2575 children under the age of 19 die on our roads annually. Road Safety education is in dire need. The problems are adult illiteracy, scarce policing on the roads and millions of school children having to use major roads to get to school, often on foot.
