Shell educates public on road safety
Shell Namibia will host road safety interventions in the form of conducting public education to motorists and their passengers as well as an equipment handing-over ceremony in the Erongo region from 13 until 16 December 2011.
The equipment handing-over ceremony will take place on Tuesday, 13 December at 10:00 at the Karibib Roadblock.
Shell adopted the Karibib Roadblock during the inception of the MVA Fund initiated and Government endorsed, road safety project Xupifa Eemwenyo in 2006, and has been a strong and recognised role player in road safety since then.
Since adopting the roadblock, Shell has provided material assistance in the form of accommodation and three meals a day, including refreshments, water and soft drinks, to officers who were deployed to the Karibib Roadblock.
“Continuing the strong relationship which we have built with law enforcement agencies, as well as the culture of support to minimise and prevent road traffic accidents, and re-affirming our commitment to sustainable development and social investment, Shell Namibia will conduct public education and hand-over equipment to the Erongo regional police at Karibib on 13 December at the Karibib Police checkpoint and we will travel to Swakopmund and Walvis Bay to conduct more public education over the next three days,” the company said in a statement.
