Author Topic: Lagos state government launches audio-visual kit for drivers  (Read 376 times)


Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State, yesterday, inaugurated Drivers’ Education Multilingual Audio-Visual Training Aid and stressed the need for effective adherence to road safety measures in the state.

Fashola, who inaugurated the self-training kit tagged Defensive Driving in Ikeja, said the visual-audio kit, produced in Nigeria’s major languages, would help to sensitise residents, especially drivers, on road safety measures.

He said: “It will further reduce the number of road crashes recorded yearly within the state. Nigeria today has the highest cases of road accidents in Africa.

“In the first half of 2012, 1,936 people were killed through road accidents and 162 per 100,000 people die of road accidents in the country.

”If this must be reduced, the drivers are important because they decide the vehicle’s speed, the route and when the vehicle operates daily.

“The vehicle and the road aren’t important to my administration than the life of the driver and the passengers, who would be affected when accidents occur in the state.

”From one accident, many families are affected directly by an act that could be avoided. Many have stopped school due to accident, since their breadwinners have passed on to the other side through accident.”

Maybe the kit would reduce road accidents in Lagos state. The amount of road accidents in Nigeria is alarming!
