The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has issued a warning to motorists who disobey the law on the usage of speed-limiting devices in their cars.
According to the corps, such noncompliance has led in an increase in speed-related accidents.
In a statement published in Abuja, FRSC Corps Marshal Boboye Oyeyemi issued the warning.
“Such flagrant disobedience to traffic safety rules would no longer be condoned in the new year as enforcement would be total and unwavering,” he warned.
In light of the enhanced road repair and building projects taking place across the country, he also urged Nigerians to develop their safe road-use culture.
Nonetheless, he stated that the corps was satisfied with the behavior of most drivers throughout the Christmas and New Year holidays, which helped to keep the number of road accidents and fatalities to a minimum.
“Every Nigerian must remain committed to tackling the challenges which road safety and COVID-19 pose to the nation’s health, safety, security and wellbeing by doing what is right at all times,” he stated
Oyeyemi praised all stakeholders who participated in road safety efforts throughout the holiday season to make roadways safer.
He stated that road safety is a shared duty that no one organization can address without the help and participation of all essential parties.
He thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for providing the required moral and logistical support for the campaigns’ success.
The FRSC head also urged all Nigerians to participate in the ongoing safety programs in order to ensure the country’s rapid socioeconomic growth.
