Twenty primary schools in the Western Division were given school patrol items yesterday.

This was in conjunction with the Land Transport Authority’s (LTA) Heartbreak Campaign being spearheaded in the West.

Spokesperson Iliesa Sokia said the Authority wanted to appeal to schools so that students were able to understand road safety from a young age.

“The Authority wants to play a pro-active role in ensuring safety on our roads and for this we acknowledge TOTAL for their contribution of the patrol items to schools,” Mr Sokia said.

“We are in a very critical stage now since we are into the festive season and the road fatality stands at 40 compared to 32 for the same period last year.

The Heartbreak Campaign will continue throughout this week in the Western and Northern divisions.
