The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Ebonyi Sector Command, has reiterated commitment to make highways in Ebonyi accident free during the Christmas and New Year celebrations.
The Sector Commander, Mrs Stella Uchegbu, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Abakaliki, that the command had commenced awareness campaigns on safety on the highways during the festive periods.
According to her, the exercise is designed to create necessary awareness to road users, especially the commercial motorists, their tricycle and commercial motorcycle counterparts, on how to drive to stay alive in the ’ember’ season.
She said that various unit commands of the corps were currently organising sensitisation campaigns for road users on ways to imbibe safety measures while on the highways.
Uchegbu said that FRSC had identified accident flash points in the state, adding that men and officers of the corps had been deployed to the areas for effective patrol and surveillance.
Uchegbu who did not give statistics of road crashes in the state, said that the corps had reduced road crashes to the barest minimum between January and November. Read more
