The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has advocated the inclusion of compulsory Road Safety Education in the curriculum of both primary and post primary schools across the country.

The commission’s Desk Officer, Youth Safety Education (YSE), Imo state Sector Command, Mr. Chukwudi Egwuonwu, who gave the clarification  at a one day stakeholders forum on “Road Safety Education” in Owerri, explained that the programme had already kicked off in some schools from basic one to nine.

He said it was intended to inculcate in the children the knowledge and understanding in reducing the rate of crashes on the nation’s highways.
