This will be done with the help of Road Safety Cubes, according to Managing Director, Jean-Philippe Torres.

He said, "The Road Safety Cubes Campaign is aimed at protecting Nigerian children between the ages of age 6 to 12, from road accidents by educating them on road signs and proper behavior on the road while going to school."
