Road safety is a shared responsibility. It is the responsibility of drivers, pedestrians, cyclists, motorists and ultimately the government.
The government cannot be blamed for road accidents, but the responsibility of the government in road safety cannot be underestimated.
The following are core responsibilities of every government in road a safety.
- Construction of roads and fixing of junk roads.
The first responsibility of the government in road safety is the construction of roads and fixing of junk roads. Bad roads increase the risk of road accidents as it makes it uncomfortable for drivers when moving along it.
Most drivers, in their quest to avoid and jump pot holes plunge themselves into road accidents. This is actually the cause of the government in the first place.
- Licensing and authorizing of worthy vehicles on the road.
It is the responsibility of the government to ensure that only drivers who are eligible to driver and have driving license drive on the road.
This is to avoid road accidents as well as preventing reckless driving on the road. A vehicle that also does not meet the respective road safety standards must not be allowed on the roads.
- Setting up road safety policies, systems and structures in the country.
Every country needs the required road safety policies to ensure safety on the road. And it is the responsibility of the government to enact laws, regulations and policies to prevent road accidents in the country.
- Enforcement of road policies, systems and structures to ensure road safety.
Polices, practices and laws are useless if they are not being enforced to ensure safety. That means the ministries, security systems, police and other law enforcement agencies must enforce the policies to ensure road safety.
By so doing, the rate at which accidents occur can be reduced. This is a core responsibility of the government in ensuring road safety.
