Rwanda National Police, Special Guarantee Fund (SFG) and the Federation of Commercial Motorcyclists (known by its French acronym, FERWACOTAMO, have launched a series of a joint road safety education campaign, focusing on behavioural change and proper road usage among taxi-moto operators.
Speaking at the launch of the campaign yesterday, Senior Superintendent of Police Jean-Marie Vianney Ndushabandi, the Spokesperson for Traffic and Road Safety Department, said that motorcycles remain the leading cause of road accidents in the Rwanda.
“Thirty-five people have died on motorcycles between January and March this year due to careless and deadly manoeuvres, alcohol abuse and speeding,” Ndushabandi said.
He said that other taxi-moto riders have resorted to the use of energy enhancing substances and illicit drugs, which affects their judgment while riding.
“The aim of this education campaign is to build a robust capability of riders, change their behaviours to counter and eliminate the menace of road safety regulation violations,” Ndushabandi noted.
“I urge all of you to adhere to road safety standards because by not doing so, you will be endangering your lives and those of other road users.”
Joseph Nzabonankuze, the Director General of the Special Guarantee Fund, noted that some motorcyclists continue to operate without insurance cover which has caused “untold suffering” to their families after accidents.
Nzabonankuze explained that, last year, they received 190 claims for compensation, whereby 99 were motorcycles that were not insured.
Pierwsze koty za ploty.
Pierwszy raz na dwóch kółkach, nie licząc rowera.
Nigdy wcześniej nie jeździłam na żadnym skuterze i innym takim. A jako pasażer dokładnie 5 razy i wszystkie sytuację pamiętam.
Nie ma to jak uczyć się jeździć i zaczynać od pojemności 600ccm.
Ale @ocik_stunts zadbał o to, żeby mi się nic nie stało, mimo tego, że pierwsza gleba zaliczona. 😂😁
Ma cierpliwość i zdolności nauczania, a przede wszystkim jest wyrozumialy. 🤗 Dziękuję 🤗🤗 Myślę, że coś z tego będzie 😍
Czas powoli pomyśleć nad czymś własnym, a jak skończę 24 lata prawko na kategorie A zrobię na bank!
Harley-Davidson Iron 1200 apela ao estilo das primeiras customizadas. No tanque, os grafismos em diferentes tons de azul remetem à pintura utilizada pela marca nos anos 70. De lá veio também a inspiração para o guidom no estilo “mini-seca-sovaco”, ou mini-Ape, como é chamado pela marca, além dos para-choques mais curtos.
