Togo to commit CFA3.14 billion to tackle road accidents

(Togo First) - To reduce accidents in the country, the Togolese government will dedicate about CFA3.14 billion to a plan of key actions to be implemented over two years. The project is the emergency phase of the road safety policy adopted by the government last Wednesday. 

The policy revolves around six major axes: management, infrastructure, vehicle quality, users, and rescue. Moreover, it aims to strengthen control and monitoring mechanisms, with road safety services providing fixed feedback. 

Over the first half of this year, Togo recorded 2,627 road accidents, which resulted in 241 deaths and 3,734 injured. According to data available, more than 2/3 of the deaths registered (164 of them) were caused by bikes.
