Quite recently, an accident along the Kabala axis took the life of Journalist SU Thoronka of Global Times Newspaper. Other Journalists were lucky to escape with minor bruises but mostly unhurt.

In an effort to educate drivers on the dangers of not adhering to road safety rules and regulations like not drinking alcohol, keeping within specified speed limit and not answering their mobile phones while driving among other rules and regulations for keeping safe on the road, a collection of civil society organizations, says it has approached the SLRSA to see how they can complement the Authority’s efforts at this time when campaign trails from Freetown to the provinces are taking place almost on a daily basis and hence the number of vehicles and people plying the routes has swelled significantly.

As we went to press, efforts to contact SLRSA to find out what methods they intend to use to motivate drivers to fully comply with SLRSA rules and regulations in order to save more lives were futile. The PRO Mr. Dumbuya was absent attending a meeting elsewhere.

However, sources close to this press maintained that the SLRSA intends to collaborate with civil society organizations to assist educate, sensitize and equip drivers using the Toll Gate with the requisite information for road safety and to assist in monitoring exercises to ensure that drivers follow suit.
