The Swedish government said Tuesday it will support the Department of Transportation’s efforts to prioritize road safety in hopes of curbing the grim rise in road crash casualties.
“Safety, efficiency, and reliability are the hallmarks of all types of public transportation, that is why we are here today showing our support for the Philippine government in promoting road safety,” Swedish Ambassador to the Philippines Annika Thunborg said during the first Road Safety Symposium on Tuesday.
The event, led by the transportation department, highlighted the search for justice for the victims of road-related crashes and their families.
“We should not diminish the importance of attaining justice for victims of road crashes and seeking peace for the families left behind,” Transportation Secretary Jaime J. Bautista said.
“No one deserves the loss of opportunities due to road incidents. Consider yourselves road safety champions. We have shared responsibility to protect every Filipino on the road,” he added.
