He said: “Over years, licensed drivers have contributed to the cause of most road accidents, however, the training of this nature gives me hope that this will change. I encourage employers to ensure that drivers attend defensive driving course before they can employ them as it will save them a lot of money, time and lives.” Tsatsanyane urged the drivers who benefited from the course to go and implement the skills they acquired without any hesitation, LENA has reported. “It is vital for these drivers to encourage their peers and teaching them the techniques they have learned in order to ensure that Lesotho's roads become more safer for everyone.
I encourage those who did not succeed to try again as this is a life-long investment,” he adviced. According to ’Mathabo Tsosane, the Traffic Commissioner, “the trainees gained skills in order to transform the lives of Basotho as they have gained skills for careful driving. As the department we are working hard to ensure that we introduce professional driving permit which will assist drivers to avoid road
accidents.” She said: “We intend to hold a harmonisation workshop through which we will be able to overcome road challenges and respond to all the needs of road users in the country. ENatis, which was recently introduced, stresses the importance of defensive driving, hence we plan to incorporate it in driving lessons for every learner.”
