Health hazards abound on the road, especially in places where the roads are delapitated, where there are no street lights for illumination at night and no speed limit for drivers.

According to the World health organisation, about 1.24 million people die each year as a result of road traffic crashes.

Road safety is everyone’s responsibility

Protect yourself and other road users including pedestrians and cyclists by

  • Driving safely; control speed
  • Use seatbelts
  • Strap children in car seats. Resist the temptation to bring them out because they are crying. It is better for them to be safe than sorry.
  • Avoid drunk driving
  • Avoid texting and talking on the mobile phone while driving and obey traffic laws.
  • Ensure that your vehicle is well maintained to reduce mechanical faults on the road.
  • Take a break; if you are too tired to drive- don’t. if necessary, park in a public place and take a nap before continuing your journey
  • It is also important to have a first aid kit in the car that can be used in cases of emergencies.
