Ever been at a red light and saw cars speed past you and you wondered what you were doing wrong? The #StopAtRed Campaign is aimed at educating road users in Nigeria about major traffic rules, especially the red light. Do you know about Road traffic safety? Do you know the road Safety signs? Do you know your traffic lights? Do you know the meaning of the different colours of the traffic light? Green? Amber? Red? Do you know what it means when the light turns Red?
Road safety and traffic management in Nigeria as elsewhere across the globe, remain dynamic fields of human endeavour; and with an ever growing vehicular population and accompanying increase in road traffic injuries and deaths, in addition to the ever escalating abuse of road traffic signs and the traffic lights by supposed “well meaning Nigerians; there is always a compelling need to re-educate ourselves on the road traffic and road safety rules from time to time; especially as to why we must obey these signs and follow the rules.
This campaign is aimed at educating and informing the general public on Road traffic rules and signs. Regardless of who you are, taxi driver, male, female, government official, public citizen, etc; as long as you are a Nigeria of certified driving capacity and age; and a road user; it also aims to build a modified driving persona, who would act out of an inner principle to obey rather than out of fear of sanctions; and is highly recommended to all road users. So please, do not just read, rebroadcast and re-tweet, etc. Act on it.
Think | Act | Impact.
