The Itori Unit Commander of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) ACC Shamaki Yerima has warned motorists against creating unwanted gridlocks that could cause traffic crashes as a result of recklessness, impatience and lane indiscipline.

He said the advised is highly imperative as recklesslessness, impatient and driving against traffic are the major challenges threatening roads withing the corridor.

ACC Yerima, who spoke with Journalists in his command, explained that motorists are expected to drive carefully, considering the conditions of the road as rainy season had fully began.

He said the corridor would have been free from gridlocks if not the bad portions on the expressway and majority of the motorists found it difficult to be patient, thereby resulting to lane indisciplines.

ACC Yerima, said he will continue to coordinate the Command's personnel to be more effective especially at the black spots on the expressway and ensure they engaged more on public enlightenment and enforcement to enable the Corps achieve its target of 15% on road traffic crashes and 20% fatalities.

He enjoined motorists to drive cautiously during this rainy season, saying driving in wet season is more dangerous and it required much discipline, concentration and enough patient. 

He stressed that rainy season creates unfavorable driving conditions as a result of the foggy weather, slippery and poor visibility. Therefore drivers are expected to drive cautiously with minimum speed and ensure their vehicles' tyres, head-lamps, wipers, brakes and other components are functioning well before hitting the road. There is always less friction when driving with worn-out tyres, he said.

"Driving with worn out tyres causes traffic crash due to road slippery and friction. It always difficult to apply brake while driving on wet season with worn-out tyres because of the slippery and frictions.

"Therefore motorists are advised to desist from driving with worn-out tyres, overspeed, drunkness and lane indiscipline to avoid crashes while behind the wheel.

"It is a bad idea to be driving on the road under the influence of alcohol/drugs. Every citizen is valuable, there are different talent and ability that can be render to the development and economy growth of this country. Any individual that killed with an unwanted crash would gone with the talent and ability that God had given unto him/her for the betterment of the country.

"Passengers also should desist from inducing the drivers with the spirit of unnecessary speed. Individuals should ensure they plan their journey with the condition of the roads. All journeys should be plan ahead of time to enable them arrive at their destinations at their proposing and desired time.

"There are some drivers claiming they have been driving for years, and they are conversant with the road, forgetting that the vehicle they drove yesterday might not be the same vehicle of today, mĂ ny things must have change from the vehicle, it may not respond well if you want to drive it in the way of yesterday. Those driving at night should ensure their lighting system, wipers and brake are functioning well.

"I have been engaging some companies within the corridor that can be of help to put palliative into the deplorable portions on the expressway to ease the stress of road users. Thank God, some of the companies have began to respond to the humanitarian call to put majority of the black portions in order, ACC Yerima, added.
