Orange Botswana notices that mobile phone use is a contributing factor to car accidents.Orange Botswana encourages Batswana not to use mobile phones while driving for the safety of all drivers.People can do incredible things on their phones but not while driving..As we approach the festive season, the number of car accidents increases building on an existing risk due to the use of mobile phones while driving. With this in mind, Orange Botswana has made it a main priority to ensure that Batswana stay safe. Orange Botswana cares about the well-being of their customers, and therefore encourages Batswana not to text and drive..Said Orange Botswana CEO, Dr. Patrick Benon, “This holiday season is usually rife with car accidents, 25% of which are caused due to people being on their phones calling or texting while they are driving, hence they are not wholly concentrating on the road as they should be. Not only does this put the life of the driver in jeopardy, but also potentially the lives of all others on the road. We want all of our valued customers to be safe and protected, and thus we impress on all not to use mobile phones while driving. What matters most to us at Orange Botswana, is the well-being of all Batswana.”.In addition to promoting safe driving, Orange Botswana would like to encourage people not to drive:under the influence of alcohol or drugswhilst fatiguedwithout wearing a seatbeltwithout using headlights if driving at night.“It is important to follow all road regulations while driving in line with the laws of the Republic of Botswana. Orange Botswana wishes Batswana a safe and joyous Christmas holiday. Let us work to ensure our roads remain safe,” concluded Benon.ENDS.
