Umar said caution has become necessary for Muslim motorists during Ramadan to minimize accidents during this time.
The area commander described fatigue as one of the factors contributing to highway collisions.
“Drivers who drive under fatigue were more likely to be involved in an accident than drivers under stress and also drive under fatigue.
“As long as fatigue sets in, the driver should not force himself to continue such a trip because it is risky, but he must rest,” he said.
The FRSC urged motorists on long journeys to avoid driving under fatigue to avoid unnecessary loss of life and property.
He said it was recommended for a driver to rest between 20 minutes and 25 minutes while undertaking a continuous journey of four to five hours.
Umar urged motorists to obey all traffic rules and regulations in order to reduce the cases of accidents during Ramadan period. (NOPE)
