SOUTH-WEST POLICE DRILL PRIMARY STUDENTS ON ROAD SAFETY

South West Region Police Headquarters has begun educating primary school students about road safety.

Addressing students at Chichiri Primary School in the City of Blantyre on Monday, 12 February 2024, Highway Traffic In-Charge, Superintendent Beatrice Nema,  encouraged the pupils to follow road safety guidelines to prevent accidents.

Nema emphasized the importance of starting this education at a young age to cultivate responsible citizenship.

She explained that by instilling road safety knowledge in students early on, they are more likely to retain and apply it, thus becoming responsible citizens since many accidents can be avoided if everyone adheres to road traffic rules and regulations.

During the session, students were instructed on safe road crossing, the necessity of wearing helmets while riding motorcycles, and the risks of carrying multiple passengers on a motorcycle.

Robert Duwa, Junior Section in charge for Chichiri Primary School, expressed gratitude to the police for the valuable tips, noting that they will help students prevent accidents, as primary school children are particularly vulnerable.
