COVID-19 Protocols: It’s Implications on Road Safety in Nigeria

Valentine Joseph Owan (UNICAL), COVID-19 Protocols: It’s Implications on Road Safety in Nigeria, SSRN (2020):

Containing the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic is a top priority of different government world over. Effective containment can only be achieved through an active contribution from different stakeholders, collaboration and responsible attitudes of citizens. Therefore, it is recommended that all citizens stay at home or move only when there is an imminent need to do so. Furthermore, since lockdown in some countries including Nigeria has been eased (allowing passengers to switch locations), it is pertinent that all individuals using the road transport system particularly, follow all other COVID-19 protocols (such as the persistent use of face mask, maintaining good hand hygiene, non-negligible sanitary practices, coughing or sneezing into a flexed elbow and obeying social/physical distancing rules) to make our road safe for all users.
