She said the topics covered including, but not limited to, causes of road accidents, impact of road accidents on the economy, pre-trip inspection, interpretation of road signs and driving in different terrains, will ensure that trainees drive to save lives, time and money.
The Road Fund Human Resources and Administration Manager Ms. ‘Mafako Lepholisa thanked Road Safety department for an eye opening training. “We thought we were experts in driving until you trained us, I wish you could equip more people in order to enhance safety on the roads,” She reiterated.
