Road ‘accidents’ mostly avoidable

first_img23 June 2006Several major accidents on South Africa’s roads have captured the attention of the media recently.At the same time, the scale of road deaths around the world has been exposed by the Commission for Global Road Safety, which released its Robertson Report this month, urging the leaders of developing countries in particular to do more to address road safety.Poorer countries hit hardestThe Robertson Report finds that more than 85% of road traffic deaths and injuries occur in low- and middle-income countries, costing their economies an estimated US$64.5-billion to $100-billion annually. Emphasizing that global road safety is seriously under-resourced, the report urges governments in low- and middle-income countries to adopt their own road casualty reduction targets, which it says should be “ambitious but achievable”.The World Health Organization estimated that almost 1.2-million people around the world died and as many as 50 million were injured in road crashes in 2002 – and forecast that, unless effective action were taken, these figures would double by 2020.Road accidents are a major and growing public health epidemic, a “disease” comparable in its destructive capacity to malaria and tuberculosis – yet one which, in most cases, is known to be preventable.Road ‘accidents’ in South AfricaThe first comprehensive statistical analysis of road accidents in South Africa, published by the Road Traffic Management Corporation in 2005, found that 90% of crashes in South Africa in 2004 were the result of lawlessness – in other words, were foreseeable and preventable and hence not strictly “accidents” at all.Data collected from accident reports for 2004 indicated that most accidents on South Africa’s roads could be attributed to two or more simultaneous offences.“Human factors” – such as non-adherence to traffic rules and aggressive, reckless, negligent or inconsiderate driver behaviour – were the major contributing factors, playing a causal role in 70-80% of all accidents. These included driving too fast for the circumstances, as well as driving under the influence of alcohol.“Vehicle factors” such as poor lights, smooth or damaged tyres and poor brakes contributed to a further 10-15% of accidents.Poor road conditions – which have drawn much media attention lately – only contributed to 5-10% of accidents in 2004.Changing attitudesFrom these statistics it becomes evident that the answers to most road safety questions will depend not only on funding, effective road safety strategies and visible campaigns. They will have to include an attitude change from those who travel and walk South Africa’s roads – one which incorporates respect for the value of human life.Not only will effective enforcement have to remove transgressors from the road, but ordinary citizens will also have to take responsibility for their actions.South African commuters have recently been empowered to report dangerous conditions and driver behaviour to the National Commuter Hotline. It is envisaged that this will enable the country’s transport authorities to address these complaints with those subsidised companies neglecting the safety of commuters.Is it possible to change attitudes towards road safety? The alternative is too scary to consider .Advocate Johan Jonck is the developer of the website www.arrivealive.co.za, a private initiative to complement the efforts of the Department of Transport to enhance awareness of road safety in South Africa.last_img read more

You really need a cover crop this year

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Harold Watters, Ohio State University Extension agronomistSo I made a trip to Omaha and back in mid-July. I attended the Sustainable Agronomy conference there and drove to the conference. Part of my goal was to do a windshield tour to see what the crops really looked like. Generally, nothing looks as it should. Ohio and eastern Indiana are the worst in many ways, but the total loss of crops due to floods in western Iowa and into Missouri were the most tragic — many losing not just this year’s crop but also last year’s that was still in the bin when floods hit this spring.I drove out and back by two different routes to get a bigger picture of what’s there, on I-80 out and U.S. 36 back for the most part. I rated the crop on a 1-10 scale with 1 being just planted or mostly flooded out to a 10 being perfect — I think I only saw one 10. We made 110 observations doing a check on both sides of the road every 20 minutes. Dark cut off our observation at around Indianapolis on the way back.Rating of corn and soybean crops on a trip from central Ohio to Omaha and back. The scale is 1 to 10, with 1 being just planted to nearly flooded out and 10 being as nice as you would expect in mid-July.OhioIndianaIllinoisIowaMissouriAve corn2.54.97.16.87.0Ave soy3.03.73.35.64.6Unplanted25%30%3%13%39%It really isn’t pretty anywhere. This year you really need a cover cropTypically, I place a cover crop article here now as I think early August is a great time to plant our fall seeded cover crops. It’s after wheat harvest, and this year there are maybe 1.5 million acres of Ohio cropland unplanted — put a cover crop there too. Mark Sulc, our OSU Forage specialist, is great at finding the value of cover crops, I choose his advice over many of the so-called cover crop experts. He created a quick and dirty table to point out some choices for summer to late-summer seedings. In addition to the species to choose from he has timing, seeding rate, and expected yield — this can also indicate the amount of cover for soil erosion protection too. He adds Crude protein and NDF as well so you may see the nutritional value if haying or grazing.Annual Forage Agronomic Guidelines and Characteristics from R. Mark Sulc (sulc.2@osu.edu) on July 8. Yield and nutritive value vary greatly with maturity stage at harvest. If you want additional ideas for cover crops that you do not intend to feed, and there is much overlap, then see the Midwest Cover Crop Council’s website and cover crop calculator: http://mccc.msu.edu/covercroptool/covercroptool.php. Much of my experience is with oat, and winter pea. For peas from the planting date trials I conducted, peas like an August to mid-September planting. With August planting you will get a lot of fall growth, then it will usually winter kill. With a September planting it will most likely not give you much fall growth, but survive the winter and continue growth in the spring. Peas are great to plant into; and have given me the best seed bed I think I have ever had for no-till corn.last_img read more

Bairstow looks to continue run riot and SRH juggernaut

first_imgHyderabad: Jonny Bairstow will be keen to continue his run riot and keep the Sunrisers Hyderabad juggernaut rolling against a Mumbai Indians side that is getting into the groove after an up-and-down start, in their IPL match here on Saturday. Currently holding the top spot in the points table with three back-to-back victories, the confident Sunrisers would not like to spare an inch against Mumbai, lying at sixth place, with two wins and as many losses from four outings. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhHowever, Mumbai will take heart from the fact that they defeated defending champions Chennai Super Kings, their first loss in four games, in the last match. In contrast, the Sunrisers, after losing their opening game against Kolkata Knight Riders, went on the win against Rajasthan Royals, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals. The Sunrisers, in fact, were without the services of their captain Kane Williamson during Thursday’s match against Delhi because of an injury, but they did not let that have an impact. Bhuvneshwar Kumar led from the front as the seamer, along with Mohammad Nabi and Siddarth Kaul, chipped in with two wickets each to restrict Delhi to 129 for eight. And with opener Bairstow (48) once again shinning with the bat, the Sunrisers had a cakewalk, cruising to a five-wicket win. Come Saturday, the Sunrisers would again be banking on the English batsmen to deliver the goods, besides Australian David Warner. The marauding pair of Warner and Bairstow have been in scintillating form this season, having shared three century-plus opening stands in four matches.last_img read more
