Walk Safe, Cross Safe (WASCS 2013)
6-12 May 2013, Temidayo Ogan Child Safety and Support (TOCSS) Foundation
Following a just concluded Observation Survey by TOCSS Foundation; it is on record that almost 80% of Road Traffic Crashes involving pedestrians in Nigeria are majorly caused by impaired walking, poor visibility clothing and poor/unsafe road crossing. So it is in view of this that "Walk Safe Cross Safe" Project was designed to commemorate the 2nd UN Global Road Safety Week and to scale up our Pedestrian Safety Campaign Project in Nigeria.The fact that poor education in this regard is majorly responsible for the non-compliance of Pedestrian, WASCS will be kicking off on Tuesday with a Press Conference to create awareness on the issues surrounding Pedestrian Safety in Nigeria; with proposed participation of all Stakeholders including the Government Sectors. Wednesday will be a Day for Media Appearance on TV and Radio Stations to further enhance the public education on Pedestrian Safety in Nigeria.Thursday and Friday will be the days for Public Enlightenment through a road show .Thousands of fliers shall be distributed and several sessions of road safety advice shall be observed.Friday 9th of May , shall be a day to engage the hearts and minds of Corporate Executives and Government Executives with the agenda of pedestrian safety in Nigeria and the way forward. Saturday will be the day for a free seminar for pedestrians and motorists while Sunday will be for the "Long Short Walk " Event to close the week long project.
