Roads for Life: 100 ISF Troops Have Followed our Rescue Sessions to Date
Roads for Life (RFL) delivered certificates to a new batch of ISF troops who completed its First Responder rescue program, thus raising the number of ISF beneficiaries to 100 members who have taken part in 4 sessions organized to date thanks to the strategic partnership with BLC Bank.
During the ceremony held on this occasion, RFL President Zeina Kassem remarked that “the National Road Safety Council is working in collaboration with traffic control units” and stressed the need to “increase the number of these units in several areas located off the international highway network, which motorcycle police and traffic patrols cannot access easily due to their numerous duties in other regions.”
Arguing that “police speed radars are an efficient method to promote road safety”, Kassem called for making them more widespread and lauded their “reinstatement using smart and efficient technology”, adding wishfully: “If only there were radars for driving paramedics ethics, which have become a rarity, to prevent traffic violations.”
