The pass-out of four-month advanced driving course for 115 Police officers and 87 military personnel, was presided over by the Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIGP) in charge of Administration and Personnel Jeanne Chantal Ujeneza.
The Deputy Police Chief emphasized the need to value lives of all people on road, which goes with maximum respect for traffic rules and regulations to prevent accidents.
"Road fatalities are still high and they are largely caused by reckless drivers. Those who die are Rwandans, the labour force and the future of this country.
Roads are used by many people, always be vigilant and use the acquired driving knowledge and skills to make them safer for all," DIGP Ujeneza said.
At least 729 road fatalities were recorded last year across the country.
DIGP Ujeneza reiterated the impact of discipline in professional driving and the image of institutions.
The Commandant of the PTS, Commissioner of Police (CP) Robert Niyonshuti, said that during the four months, the course covered drills and duties, traffic rules and regulations, and exercise in driving.
It also equipped the trainees with maintenance and driving of light vehicles, camion, APCs and gunnery.
