Despite the varied state of COVID-19 protocols in various countries, including Nigeria, drivers can expect the roads to be quite busy in the coming days, as the Esther season knocks.
As stressed by The Road Safety Partnership SA (RSP SA), drivers who will be traveling to holiday destinations during this time need to exert caution and patience when on the roads.
Drivers must take responsibility for their own driving behaviors and commit to doing their part in creating safer roads.
RSP SA advises: “The first step is to make a personal commitment to obey the road regulations and driving in a manner that suits the conditions and reduces the possibility of accidents occurring.
“If each driver makes this commitment the potential to reduce the number of crashes and consequently unnecessary loss of life, injuries, and the expenses associated with accidents can be avoided.”
As the world continues to manage the effects of COVID-19, it is also important that no unnecessary strain is placed on the healthcare system either.
In essence, even though the COVID-19 vaccine is being administered in many countries, motorists should not get complacent. Observation of COVID-19 protocols should continue.
In addition to making a personal commitment to good driving habits, government, private organizations, and not-for-profit organizations must work together during this time to assist in reducing high crash statistics.
