CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY

To confront the general lack of traffic knowledge and poor road user attitude through imbuing in the children, basic traffic knowledge and the right road user attitude and behaviour, AARSI, in partnership with FRSC, established Road Safety Clubs on 20 schools in Lagos. Here children receive lessons on general road safety, weekly.

With a view to extending the known road safety measures to children, AARSI joined FRSC, Safety Beyond Borders, TOCSS Foundation, Association for Better Environment and Life Savers Initiative, to launch a Child Passenger Safety Campaign. The campaign aims at improving the manner in which children are transported in the vehicles, highlighting the use of Seat Belts, Car Seats, Boaster Seat and Child Helmets.

In response to May 11, 2011 multiple crash along Lekki-Epe road in Lagos State, involving 7 vehicles and 19 persons, in which 4 School children in a school bus were killed, AARSI re-launched Child Passenger Safety campaign in Lagos and Abuja.
