Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi, has urged road users across the country to be conscious of their safety on the highways during the festive period.
Oyeyemi gave the advice at the flag-off ceremony of the 2019 Eid-el-Kabir mega rally campaign organised by the corps to sensitise drivers and other road users on Thursday at Wazobia park, Gwagwalada in Abuja.
Oyeyemi, who was represented by the Corps Public Education Officer , Bisi Kazeem, said that the campaign had become imperative in view of the envisioned increase in vehicular and human movement across the country.
He added that it was necessary for road users, especially the commercial drivers, to know basic traffic rules and regulations with a view to reducing crashes on the highways.
Oyeyemi said that the corps had come out to tackle the situation head-on with commitment and determination as evidenced by the comprehensive measures put in place to address it.
