Djibouti Corridor Road Safety Initiative
On May 23, 2014, Total Ethiopia and the Federal Road Transport Authority (FRTA) jointly organized the “Djibouti Corridor Road Safety Initiative” meeting in Addis Ababa.
This meeting was organized in collaboration with a number of stakeholders in the field (insurance and banking institutions, motor, transport and beverage companies).
The final aim is to reduce the number of road accidents, as part of the “Road Safety Awareness Campaign Program for Truck Drivers!” led by the affiliate and the FRTA in order to motivate 7,000 trucks drivers to reduce traffic accidents while creating awareness on the dangers of the road.
Road traffic accidents in Ethiopia are a serious problem with 10 people dying in road accidents every day out of which one is a child.
