FRSC inaugurates "operation crash the crashes" in Osun

18 March 2014, 07:44

Ilesha - Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Zone 11, on Monday in Ilesha inaugurated a week-long special intervention patrol tagged, '”Operation Crash the Crashes”, along Ibadan-Ilesha-Akure expressway.

The Zonal Commanding Officer RS 11, Sambo Kinya, said the campaign was targeted at checking “over-speeding, over-loading, wrong overtaking and making calls while driving”.

The operation is expected to hold between March 17 and March 23.

“It is our duty to ensure that crashes are reduced to the barest minimum along our highways as the FRSC places a high premium on human lives.”

“For this special intervention, we will be very particular about enforcement as there will be mobile courts to instantly try and punish recalcitrant motorists.”

“For the seven days, we will step up patrols during the day and night at identified dark spots as well as during the weekends,” Kinya said.

He said the operation would be carried out with the combination of the regular and special marshals for maximum effect and broad coverage.

Kinya said the patrol would be backed with arrests and impounding of vehicles of offenders.

According to him, the FRSC has not stopped its safe road use campaign as the special intervention is meant to further raise awareness and enforcement.

The FRSC will as from July 1 begin enforcement of the new number plate.
