Women to play instrumental role in pro-
moting road safety in Namibia: official

WINDHOEK, (Xinhua) -- Namibia hosted the first Women Road Safety Conference, and the subsequent establishment of the Women in Road Safety Network in the country on Wednesday in the capital city, Windhoek.

The conference co-hosted by the Motor Vehicle Accident Fund (MVA) and Namibia’s Automobile Association served as a platform for women to raise their voice in support of safer roads by influencing policies and breaking existing status quo.

MVA CEO, Rosalia Martins-Hausiku in a statement said the conference promoted road safety awareness and education among women, re-enforced the concepts of co-dependence and shared responsibility in the fight against injury and death on roads.

Recent road crash data from the MVA show that compared to the same period in 2017, the year to date statistics for 2018 indicate that, crashes declined by 9 percent; injuries declined by 18 percent and fatalities declined by 31 percent.

According to Martins-Hausiku, the positive trend is attributed to enhanced collaboration between road safety partners as well as the general public.

Namibia’s Transport Minister, John Mutorwa who was present at the event said the subsequent establishment of the Women in Road Safety Network will allow women to actively and positively influence society on road safety and safe driver behavior.
