In an effort to curb the rising number of road accidents in the country, a special road safety campaign has been launched across the national territory. It will run from Tuesday December 12th 2023, to January 31st 2024 and aims principally to address uncivic behaviors.

Organized by the Minister of Transport, Jean Ernest Massena Ngalle Bibehe, the campaign will focus on several key areas, including speeding, the compulsory wearing of seat belts, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and dangerous overtaking. These behaviors have been identified as major contributors to road accidents and fatalities.

With the festive season fast approaching, the campaign aims to ensure safe and successful celebrations by raising awareness and promoting responsible road usage. Emphasis have been layed for the need for road users to adhere to traffic regulations and exercise caution while driving.

During this period, law enforcement agencies will be deployed across the territory to enforce road safety measures and crack down on violators. Increased patrols and checkpoints are expected to be set up in order to monitor compliance with speed limits and seat belt usage. Drivers found driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol will face severe penalties.

Road users are all called upon to play their part in ensuring a safe and accident-free festive season. They should endeavour to develop responsible behavior, prioritize their safety and the safety of others.

It is worth mentioning, the government remains committed to reducing road accidents and creating a safer road environment for all citizens.

Note, as the campaign kicks off, it is hoped that road users will heed the call for responsible behavior and contribute to making the roads safer for everyone.
