However, we can collectively reduce them if we all can volunteer to become Road Safety Advocates by taking the message of safety to our homes, social media, areas of relaxation, churches, mosques, markets, motor parks and hoa st others
“I implore you as a matter of urgency, as you go back to your destination, to discuss road safety and drive the message of Road Safety home for maximum impact by all, “Omiko said.
