Sefety Beyond Borders
• The Light Up the Nights for Roads safety advocacy campaign was to drastically reduce crashes that occur during the hours of 7pm in the evening and – 6am at dawn all across Nigeria by mobilizing drivers to use the $4 (four dollar) safety device (a pair of 1.5 feet long reflective tapes) to promote the visibility of their vehicles in the night. • The campaign urges car owners to stick a pair of reflective tapes at the back of their cars. • The campaign targets tankers and articulated vehicles.
Road Safety Intervention
