FRSC cautions motorists on speeding during Sallah



The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) command in Ogun, has advised motorists against excessive speeding during the Sallah celebration to minimise crashes

Mr Anthony Uga, the Sector Commander, gave the advice in an interview with our reporter on Monday in Ota.

It was reported that Muslim faithful will celebrate Sallah across the country on June 16.

Uga implored motorists in the state to be more safety cautious during the period as the volume of traffic would automatically increase.

“The FRSC urges motorists in state to celebrate safely, we should remember that only the living can celebrate.

“Motorists should check their vehicle tyres, they should also ensure that their wipers are effective, remember that this is rainy season,” he said.

The sector commander further enjoined motorists to strictly obey traffic rules and regulations to prevent unnecessary loss of lives.

“Do not drive when drunk, avoid wrongful overtaking to reduce mishaps during the period and beyond.

“Many lives will be saved if motorists can adhere strictly to traffic rules and regulations,” he said.
