03 April 2015, 07:41Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Motorists and other road users have been warned to exercise caution as the rainy season sets in.

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Public Education Officer, Imoh Etuk, said on its part, the agency had initiated strategic plans to ensure sanity on the highways during the season. 

Etuk highlighted the need for strict compliance with traffic rules and regulations among road users especially during this period.

He said the FRSC wished to reiterate its commitment towards safer road use during this period and warned the Nigerian motoring public on the need to comply with all traffic rules and regulations as they ensured proper maintenance of their vehicles.

It is important that drivers fix the vehicle wiper blades, head and tail lights, brakes and avoid the use of worn-out tyres to enhance safety as they plied the roads when it is raining, he said.

He expressed concern over the attitude of many drivers in the country on tyre care and maintenance, adding that most Nigerian drivers have poor maintenance culture. 

Etuk opined that drivers should have correct tyre pressures as recommended by vehicle/tyre manufacturers, advising them to avoid under or over inflation of tyres.

“Motorists are also advised to reduce their speed during this time and apply the common sense speed limit,” Etuk said in Abuja.
