FRSC warns motorists against reckless driving

16 December 2013, 13:41

Lafia - Francis Udoma, the Nasarawa State Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), has cautioned drivers against reckless driving during and after the yuletide festivities.

The commander gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lafia on Sunday.

He said the advice became necessary to reduce accidents on the highways because the remaining period of the year was often characterised with festivities and increase in vehicular movement.

"Motorists should desist from drinking alcohol, but if they must drink, they must not drive," the sector commander said.

Udoma warned that violators of traffic laws during the remaining part of the year would be arrested and their cars impounded.

He said the command would organise series of activities to sensitise the public on traffic rules and regulations in the remaining part of the year.

Udoma also called on drivers to check their tyres and ensure that their vehicles were roadworthy before embarking on journeys.

He said most accidents were caused by drivers who disregarded speed limit regulations and indulged in reckless driving in order to make huge profits.

"We have commenced our end-of-year patrols on the highways to ensure that motorists observe traffic regulations," Udoma said.

He also appealed to parents and guardians not to allow their children and wards below 18 years to drive vehicles in compliance with traffic rules and regulations.
