The Motor Vehicle Accident Fund of Namibia’s senior manager for accident and injury prevention, Sidney Boois has urged drivers to be more cautious during the festive season, telling the Namibia press agency in an interview that “drivers should not just sit behind the wheels but should be engaged and should also comply with all the rules of the road”. Boois said tyre condition is one of the underlining factors or causes of many car crashes on the road in Namibia, explaining that the fund has “realised that two out of ten drivers know their tyre pressure while the other 80 per cent remain ignorant and negligent […] and that negligence is costly as lives are lost”.
