Share This

By OLALEKAN AYENI --- The Zone RS2 Commander of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) ACM Peter Kibo has urged motorists to drive with minimum speed especially at the construction areas of the highways.

He said motorists are expected to maintain the prescribed 50km per hour, especially at construction zones where traffic is diverted, saying traffic crashes are avoidable if motorists and other road users could obey the rules guiding the use of highways.

The Zonal Commander disclosed this in a private interview with INFORMATION CARRIER in his office. He discouraged motorists from overloading, excess speed, wrongful overtaking, driving under the influence of alcohol that could result in accident during the Eid-el-Kabir celebration even beyond, adding that only the living celebrates.

ACM Kibo said FRSC's core mandate is to ensure motorists get to their various destinations safely without any threat during and after the Sallah celebrations.

He enjoined motoring public to cooperate with FRSC as both personnel and equipments have been deployed to all critical corridors within the zone for special operations which will focus on excessive speed; driving without valid driver's license, dangerous driving; wrongful overtaking; lane indiscipline; use of phone while driving; seat belt violation; overloading violation; tyre violation (expired/substandard) as well as speed limiting device violation,  passengers manifest violation by commercial vehicles, use of drugs/ alcoholic while driving including strict adherence to Covid19  protocols. 

The FRSC Chief appealed to construction companies to embark on palliative measures that will suit the traveller's movement in all construction areas of the zone during the sallah.

ACM Kibo stressed that FRSC will no longer tolerate the use of spy number plates and illegal tinted glasses including the use of siren when there's no emergency. He added that anyone caught floating this rule will be prosecuted in accordance with traffic laws.
