RASI – Road Awareness and Safety Instructor

What is the RASI Project?

The RASI Project involves a fun interactive road safety animated video, endorsed by the RTMC (Road Traffic Management Corporation) intended to teach young children the fundamentals of crossing a road safely.

The video features the RADA character named RASI which is an acronym for Road Awareness and Safety Instructor.

Note to educators:

The RASI road safety video is intended to be used as an educational tool only. The basic road safety steps as set out in the school curriculum must be followed.

We suggest that you play the video more than once:

Show the video to the learners;
go through the steps that are in the school curriculum; and
play the video again, to help reinforce the message.

What led to the creation of the RASI Project?

It was brought to our attention by numerous RADA contacts within the South African Police Service and Community Policing Forum that within many communities around South Africa, issues exist surrounding road safety and the task of crossing a road.  The result of the discussion culminated in RADA creating the RASI Project.

What is the aim of the RASI Project?

The aim of the RASI Project is to educate communities on how to cross a road safely by providing them with the necessary information to do so.

How can you support the RASI Project?

We encourage you to make use of the RASI road safety video and to share it with others.

With your help, it is our intent to distribute the RASI road safety video to an extensive audience throughout South Africa.
