The Council of Ministers approved the establishment regulation of the Road Safety & Fund Service during a session last week. The Service is formed by the merger of the National Road Safety Council Office, the Insurance Fund Service and two directorates previously under the now-defunct Federal Transport Authority. The National Road Safety Council Office, established in 2011, is mandated to formulate national road safety strategies and assess existing standards. The Ministry of Transport & Logistics supervises both agencies. The new institution will be responsible for all road safety activities, vehicle and driving licensing standards among other mandates. A statement from the Office of the Prime Minister blamed the absence of a strong government institution that oversees road safety as one of the reasons behind road safety issues in the country. According to the former Federal Transport Authority, the cost associated with road accidents is estimated at an average of 80 million dollars a year.
