Ahead of the Easter celebrations, the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), has advised motorists to be safety conscious and drive with care to avoid road crashes.
The Itori Unit Commander, Mr Fatai Bakare, made this known in an interview with journalists on Saturday in Ota.
“Motorists should be safety conscious by not taking excessive alcohol while driving to their various destinations during the festive period”, he said.
Bakare warned motorists against over speeding, saying that most of the accidents were caused by over speeding.
“Motorists should not be in hurry to get to their destinations, because whether they speed or not, they will surely get to where they are going”, he said.
The unit commander also urged motorists to obey all road rules and regulations, in order to ensure safety of lives and property.
He said that corps marshals would be on the roads during the Easter period to enforce rules and regulations.
