    Transport Sector

    Our goal in the transport sector is to reduce road crashes and deaths. We focus on changing people’s attitudes toward safe road user behavior, including adhering to speed limits, wearing helmets and seatbelts, and avoiding drunk driving.

    Our approach involves passenger empowerment, driver sensitization, timely road crash data analysis and dissemination, and road safety research.

    Why Speak Up?

    According to the annual crime police report of 2021, out of the 4,159 fatalities recorded nationwide in 2021, approximately 46% were by passenger motorcycles (boda-boda) and approximately 53% were by light, medium, and heavy omnibus plus boda-bodas. The major cause was risk behavioral factors like speeding, careless driving, reckless driving, under influence of drugs/drinks, overloading, over speeding, and careless pedestrians. Therefore, our project’s strategy is targeting the implementation of policy around these risk behaviours, especially among drivers of public transport means like taxis and boda-bodas which are the major contributors to road crashes, deaths, and injuries.
