Road safety starts now
The ultimate aim is to reduce the trend of fatalities on the Namibian roads thereby saving lives. The campaign officially started last Friday, 22 November and runs until mid-January 2014. Under the theme, Mind The Consequences of Speeding, the campaign focuses on road safety awareness, intensified law enforcement and improved emergency medical response services. The campaign aims to reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities through targeted action against the common road offences such as speeding, drinking and driving, overloading and unfit vehicles, which are the leading causes of fatal road crashes. Law enforcement operations will be increased and stringent measures to ensure adherence to traffic regulations will be deployed through close monitoring at road blocks, increased highway patrols and aerial surveilance.
