“Within the framework of this project, trained traffic controllers are stationed at selected nursery and primary school along busy roads in municipalities,” Edwin Achimbom Minang, director of CAROSAF, who made the appeal, told journalists on the eve of school resumption, in Buea.
Minang was speaking at a press conference, during which he and other CAROSAF officials presented a report of how successful the traffic controllers’ project was last academic year in nine chosen nursery and primary schools in Fako Division, where it was first launched.
Another CAROSAF official, Robert Tama Lisinge, talking on general perspectives on road safety, said awareness is one of the easiest measures to ensure road safety. He regretted that, each year world-wide over 1.2 million people die as a result of road crashes and about 50 million are injured.
