The Plateau Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps ( FRSC ) said it would soon introduce road safety education in public primary and secondary schools in the state.
Mrs Pat Emeordi, the corps Sector Commander in the state, made this known in an interview with the News men on Monday in Jos.
According her, the initiative is aimed at inculcating safety education in children with a view to increasing their level of awareness.
“The idea behind this initiative is to catch them young and to enable them understand the fundamentals and rudiments of safety education.
“We are already talking with the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) and the state Ministry of Education to ensure the implementation of the initiative.
“So, by the special grace of God, we shall soon start the programme in Plateau,” he said.
Emeordi explained that the safety education would be infused into core subjects like English Language, Mathematics, Science and Technical Education, among others.
