Club news: AA Namibia launches ‘Women in road safety’

Publication date: 07 June 2017

The Automobile Association of Namibia (AA Namibia) recently launched the ‘Women in road safety’ campaign, to trigger women to be part of road safety by expanding their skills and knowledge regarding traffic rules. 


Over 200 women attended the event, which took place in the capital Windhoek, including the Mayor, Laura Mcloed- Katjirua, who also officiated the event. She stated that, "These interventions were long overdue, as women indeed need to sharpen their motoring skills as the number of female drivers has increased as compared to 10 years ago."


AA Namibia’s General Manager, Hileni Tjivikua, also reminded the audience, "Road safety is everybody’s responsibility and women should join their voices against the road carnage since Namibia has a very small population and it can no longer continue to lose more lives in car crashes that could be prevented."


The Club plans to make this an annual event across the country if finances and other resources are available.
