Road safety lessons at school could become a prerequisite for young drivers to secure their learner’s licence as government ministries discuss measures to improve driving standards.
Meetings have been held between government ministries to see what can be done, with the transport and education ministries studying which measures could be brought in at schools to cultivate a greater culture of road safety.
One such proposal is that attending road safety lessons at school become a prerequisite to obtaining a learner’s driving licence.
Elsewhere, the transport and education ministers looked to conscripts at the national guard – a demographic seen as more likely to be involved in crashes.
Proposals may be made to hold road safety seminars at the army camps.
