It paints a vivid picture of what we experience every day on our unsafe roads. We, the Youth, representing over 74 countries proclaim 'hear our voice' and our call for immediate action. We also explain Rwandan Students statement on Road Safety where it mentions different demands of students including to add road safety curriculum in Primary school.
