MONROVIA, Feb. 24 (LINA) – The Liberia National Police (LNP) Chief of Traffic, Alphonso Binda, has disclosed that the LNP is going to hold a dialogue with collaborating partners and stakeholders to ensure that individuals take initiative to curb road fatality in Liberia.

“Road safety is not only the job of the LNP, but it is also a societal problem, so we need the basic requirements to support the issue of road safety across the country,” Binda said.

Speaking recently in an interview during the third global ministries conference on road safety in Stockholm, Sweden, Binda said the LNP is going to carry on massive awareness in order to reduce the rate of road accidents in the country.

“With a traffic death rate of 35.9 per 100, 000 population, Liberia has one of the highest traffic fatality rate worldwide, and that means more than 1,650 people die in traffic accidents in Liberia every year, not to mention life-altering injuries and economic consequences for families who experience personal loss and damaged vehicle.”

He revealed that Liberia loses up to 7percent of it GDP due to inadequate road safety measures and high levels of traffic-related deaths and injuries annually, quoting the World Health Organization (WHO) global road safety status report of 2018.

At the same time, Binda indicated that for the first time in Liberia, they had road safety quizzing and debates and it was amazing to know that Liberians want to learn about traffic laws, pointing out that if the basic instruments are provided he believes road accident will reduce to the lowest.

“Our people are not educated to the rules of the roads, as you may be aware, we fought 14 years of war and we have not had a national drivers educational workshop for motorists, pedestrians and vulnerable road users,” Binda noted.

He pointed out that the key solutions to road safety in Liberia are logistics, massive awareness and enforcement, adding that there are so many vehicles, motorists who are not registered, indicating that there are also people who can drink and drive and the police do not have the requisite logistics to ensure these things are minimized.

“I want to believe that if we have the logistics that are needed, we can carry out enforcement in order to meet our ultimate goal,” said Binda.

He encouraged all citizens to make use of the necessary tools which include seatbelt, helmet and always drive on the right lane and having functional lights while the LNP works out modality to ensure that the high rate of road accident decreases.
