The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) declared night travels unsafe for motorists and commuters, due to the deplorable state of most roads and the mounting insecurity in the country.
The FRSC Sector Commander in Kogi, Solomon Agure, in a statement on Monday in Lokoja stressed that no good road experience could come out of speeding, overloading, use of phone while driving, use of mechanically deficient vehicles, failure to use seat belt and safety crash helmet.
Agure urged motorists to avoid running foul of traffic rules to avoid crashes, insisting that drivers must guide against violating the stated infractions and other anti-safety vices.
He said that the corps would be on the look out to enforce strict compliance to safety laws and orders on the highways.
Agure revealed that arrangements had been made for the commencement of 2021’s Ember Months and Operation Zero Tolerance to Road Traffic Campaign in Kogi.
He said that the campaign would be carried out under the theme: “Maintain Safe Speed, Avoid Night Travels And Enjoy Quality Road Experience”.
Agure told road users to expect a high visibility of the corps on the roads across the state from now till middle of January, 2022.
He said that the command was planning to deploy over 800 personnel, 20 patrol vehicles, four ambulances and heavy tow trucks for control of traffic.
“It aims at ensuring route lining, clear obstruction and respond to distress calls for all to have maximum road use experience during and after the period,”
