The Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, has called on motorists to ensure full compliance with all road traffic laws.
He made the call to motorists in a statement by the FRSC spokesperson, Bisi Kazeem, ahead of the 2022 Easter celebration.
Boboye said, “FRSC personnel have been adequately briefed on the imperatives of ensuring that motorists are made to drive in accordance with the stipulation of the Nigerian Highway Code and other regulations on best road practices.
“Corps will continue to sustain every arrangement already in place to ensure the safety of all road users, including aggressive public education campaigns and effective deployment of operational materials to enforce law and order.”
He also warned drivers to desist from all forms of overloading of vehicles either with persons, animals or with goods and excessive speed among other bad road use behaviours.
While urging them to exhibit more tolerance and imbibe patience, the Corps Marshal further called on Nigerians to cooperate with law enforcement agents and ensure maximum compliance with all established laws so as to avoid the wrath of the law.
He wished all travellers a happy and safe celebration reminding members of the public to always tune in to the National Traffic Radio 107.1 FM for real time traffic updates and road safety education and also endeavour to call the FRSC call centre through the toll-free line: 122 to report any emergencies.
