According to an article published on Daily News, telecommunication services have become central to everyday life, Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) Fund, chief executive officer has said.
Giving a keynote address at the World Telecommunications and Information Society Day in Shorobe recently, Mr Cross Kgosidiile said it was on such a backdrop that they have since extended services to road safety.
Mr Kgosidiile also noted that telecommunication services have also transformed the approach to running businesses in the country.
“People no longer need the physical proximity as they look to maximise profits hence Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has become vital,” he said.
He noted that the commemoration theme acknowledged the existence of road traffic accidents, hence the need for the transport sector to harness the power of ICTs to counter the challenge. “Road traffic crashes are a big problem to the national development agenda and therefore we are inclined to use ICTs to improve road safety,” he said.
