Eid-el-Maulud: FRSC tasks motorists on patience, speed limits

By Ismail Abdulaziz

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has called on the automotive public and other road users to avoid reckless driving, be more patient and resist the temptation to violate stated speed limits on all roads from the country.

Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, corps marshal and director general of the FRSC, made the appeal in a statement by Bisi Kazeem, the corps’ public education officer, in Abuja on Monday.

The call was made as part of outreach programs aimed at strengthening and consolidating the Corps’ existing efforts and strategies to ensure a safer automotive environment during the upcoming Eid El Maulud celebration in 2021.

The corps marshal, while celebrating the season with Muslim worshipers, revealed that accident-free mobility is possible in the country.

He said this would be achieved through the main attributes or discipline of road use and absolute adherence to established traffic rules and regulations.

“When pedestrians comply with the use of walkways and pedestrian bridges when they are provided, when drivers refrain from taking intoxicating substances before getting on the wheels, when they observe and obey traffic lights and all speed limits.

“When they regularly maintain their vehicles, avoid overloading, dangerous and reckless driving and become more tolerant of other road users; the carnage on our roads would have been drastically reduced ”, he declared.

He urged motorists to soak up the attributes of safe road use as they travel across the country, noting that the Corps would ensure better visibility of staff around all lanes.

Explaining some of the reasons for the improved visibility, he noted that the celebration takes place during the smoldering months when the roads tend to be busier during the day.

He said the Corps has observed that a key feature of the ember period over the years is an increase in the volume of traffic, as road users become impatient.

While wishing the entire Muslim community a smooth celebration, Oyeyemi called on the automotive public to use all FRSC social networks such as facebook.com//frscnigeria, Instagram.com//frscnigeria, twitter.com//frscnigeria, to necessary updates and in case of emergency.

He said they can also call the toll-free number 122 and the National Traffic Radio live lines at 08052998090, 09067000015 and 08052998012 which are available ways to reach FRSC to report traffic situations anywhere in the country.
