The Cameroonian Ministry of Transport launched the recruitment by competitive examination of 240 road safety experts. The department plans to train 160 driving license and road safety inspectors, including 20 interns, and 80 driving license and road safety officers, including 10 interns.
Candidates will take four tests, including a general culture test, a professional synthesis test, a practical test of driving a vehicle, including the slot and traffic, and an interview with a jury. Road safety has always been among the Cameroonian government’s priorities. A similar completion was launched in May 2022.
For the past few years, the government has been fighting against road accidents, especially on major roads. In addition to radars that are now positioned on most roads to cap speed, the Ministry of Transport is multiplying awareness campaigns.
The latest statistics from this ministry reveal that in 2021, more than 3,000 people died in road accidents. Excessive speeding appears as the primary cause of traffic accidents.
