I view traffic fatalities and crashes as a public health emergency requiring prompt, decisive, and committed response.
Thus, the event’s relevance, which aims to demand efforts towards enhancing road safety and preventing preventable lives and fatalities, is apparent.
He declared, “The toll of these injuries and deaths is catastrophic for families, the country’s economy, and humanity in general.”
In order to make the roads safer for users, he urged governments, stakeholders, and the general public to adopt tried-and-true tactics like rebuilding hazardous roadways, enforcing speed limits, and enhancing vehicle designs overall.
“This advocacy is consistent with the safe system approach, which guarantees zero fatalities even in the event of a crash caused by human error.
“Over the years, the corps and its partners have maintained their commitment to this worldwide occasion by marking it with week-long events that guarantee maximum impact.
While the FRSC restates its pledge to work with its partners and stakeholders to provide a safer driving environment.
We urge all citizens to join us in this endeavor by merely following traffic laws and regulations and showing gratitude for the corps’ and its employees’ efforts on behalf of the general welfare of all users of the roads.
