Côte d’Ivoire, road safety awareness
Aboisso, the capital of South Comoé in Côte d'Ivoire, is one of the busiest road networks for drivers travelling to Ghana, Togo, Benin and Nigeria. This region has one of the highest traffic accident rates in Côte d'Ivoire, with an estimated 1,200 deaths and over 21,000 injuries annually. The Ivorian government has introduced a points-based driving licence and multiple controls to raise awareness of road safety. The driving licence is made up of a capital of 12 points. In the event of a breach of the road traffic regulations, points are deducted. The more serious the offence, the greater the number of points subtracted.
