FRSC to use "total force" on road users

25 November 2013, 18:29

 Lagos - The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Monday said it has adopted new strategies to reduce crashes during the ember months.

The Kaduna State Sector Commander, Mike Olagunji disclosed this during the flagging off of ``Operation Total Forces on Road Crashes'' in Kaduna.

The operation, according to him, which would be anchored in collaboration with the state NDLEA, would test motorists to ensure they were free from any harmful substance, before embarking on their journey.

He said they have deployed 200 marshals and 75 officers for 22-hour routine patrols to monitor speed and driving compliance to traffic rules by motorist.

Olagunji said the patrol would cover Kaduna-Abuja, adding that the road marshals would be stationed at Kakau toll gate, Alheri camp and Katari.

He said similar patrols would be conducted on Kaduna- Kachia- Kafanchan road.

The corps commander advised road users to avoid over speeding, over loading, use of mobile phones while driving and wrong over taking, as they are major causes of road accidents.

He reminded motorists that only the living celebrates, and urged drivers to reduce their speed so as to save peoples’ lives.

The  52-day operation will run from November 25 to January 15, 2014.
