Yuletide: FRSC urge against motorists to obey traffic rules, avert accidents

The Ogun State Sector Commander of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Corps Commander Ahmed Umar, has advised commuters to always adhere to all rules and regulations, while using the highways as there would be an increase in both human and vehicular activities during the Yuletide season.

He discouraged the use of expired tyres, lack of vehicle maintenance, overspeeding, wrongful overtaking among others as such could result in accidents during the period.

Umar spoke while commissioning the newly constructed Quarter Guard at Idiroko Unit Command of the corps.

The two-in-one event was to flag off the ’ember’ months campaign within the corridor. The campaign’s theme is: ‘Drive Safe, Stay Safe’.

Umar noted that the disobedience to traffic rules and regulations was responsible for the high rate of crashes during the Yuletide season.

He said the personnel would be deployed across the state during the Yuletide to test the motorists suspected to be under the influence of intoxicating substances while on the wheel.
