Somaliland Road Safety Program started this petition to send this to our MPS in the upper and lower of Somaliland and to our police and government services.

In Somaliland are vehicle collisions are on the rise and that in order to reduce car accidents, The government of Somaliland needs a plan to make the drivers license tough and strict, and that you need driver training to get a drivers license not through bribes in the government, and you need to pass two drivers test in order to get yourlicense, you need to pass a  vision test to get your license and also a written test and road test to get your license and after you pass the written test you will get a permit license and with the permit you can't drive by yourself and you need  a fully licensed driver with 5 years of driving experience to be in the front seat, and you need to pass a mandatory driver education program to have adequate and effective driving skills to do the road test and final exam for your drivers license, you need to learn the dangerous of driving and how to handle certain situation through the course and how to avoid and prevent collisions, last but not least how to handle in emergency in all kinds of situations.  The government and Police needs to also introduce a Commercial license  for driving a bus, taxi, trucks and  to drive ambulances. In order to get a Commercial drivers license you need to be a fully licensed Somaliland driver and you need to have the license for more then 2 years to be qualified. There should be driving training courses for commercial drivers and that you need to know there is a responsibility in driving a commercial  vehicle because you are carrying passengers and cargo, and that the passengers need to feel safe in their ride in commercial vehicles. School buses in Somaliland need safety regulations, and that i urge the government that all school buses in Somaliland should be painted yellow and to have a stop sign, and with that stop sign the sign will come out and that all drivers who see the bus flashing the signs must stop,and if they don't stop they would be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, and that all the doors of the school and city buses need to be on the right not on the left.

For city buses they need to have a bus stop away from the road from disrupting traffic, and that they can move only when the way is clear.

In  Somaliland there should be a law to pull over if you hear sirens like ambulances, fire trucks, and police cars when they are going to an emergency, and that all drivers should pull over to the right and stop, and if they fail to stop there will be a penalty and fine to pay and also prosecution.  Our roads there ahould be lines on roads divding opposite side of traffic. Please visit Somaliland Road Safety program at Facebook, and give your opinion. Please help make our roads in Somaliland safe.
