The Land Transport Authority is advising students, teachers, parents, drivers, and other road users to be mindful of road safety during the Coke Games.
LTA Chief Executive Officer Samuel Simpson is urging everyone to take extra care on the road.
He says drivers are urged to stay within speed limits and to not over speed.
Samuel adds that supporters, and school children need to be responsible with the use of school flags and banners on the road which is most common during sporting events as any form of distraction on the road can be very catastrophic for drivers.
The LTA CEO is also calling on children and supporters of respective schools to refrain from rowdy behaviour in moving vehicles, especially in buses as seen in the past which can disrupt the driver’s attention on the road resulting in major road collisions.
He is also reminding drivers engaged during the Coke Games to be more responsible and not get carried away with the excitement of the games.
On the eve of Easter, Samuel says given the extended holiday our roads will be busier as well and staying within speed limits is important to avoid road accidents.
Meanwhile, LTA officers will also be on the road monitoring drivers during Coke Games to the Easter holiday period and anyone found breaking the law will be dealt with.
