The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has reiterated its stance on the absolute obedience to safety rules on the highways, saying that defaulters of such would henceforth be dealt with in accordance with the rule of laws from 2022.

A statement by Mr. Bisi Ka­zeem, the Corps Public Educa­tion Officer, FRSC said that the corps observed that some mo­torists consistently disobey the speed limit devices in their ve­hicles, thereby leading to avoid­able road crashes, but vowed that such flagrant disobedience won’t be tolerated from 2022.

The statement hinted that Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi, the Corps Marshal, FRSC, expressed disgust at the disobedience to safety rules, thereby leading to increased accident rates in the country.

He, however, observed that fatal crashes on the highways reduced in the last Christmas celebration and mentioned over-speeding as one of the causal factors of accidents on the road.

He explained that accidents as a result of over-speeding com­pelled the corps to introduce speed limits on vehicles and enjoined motorists to obey the laws to the letter.

He said: “The discovery that some Nigerians are still flout­ing the law on the use of speed limiting devices in their vehi­cles resulting in the upsurge in speed-related crashes was unfortunate. But such flagrant disobedience to traffic safety rules would no longer be con­doned in the New Year as en­forcement would be total and unwavering.”

Oyeyemi commended all the stakeholders that joined the road safety campaigns during the festive periods to make the roads safer, adding that road safety remained a shared re­sponsibility, which no single organisation could tackle all alone without the support and collaboration of relevant stake­holders.

He particularly expressed gratitude to President Muham­madu Buhari for rendering all necessary moral and logistics support for the success of the campaigns in the outgoing year.
