FRSC to improve collaboration with grassroots to combat auto-crashes
The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has reiterated its commitment towards collaborating with traditional rulers to intensify efforts aimed at reducing auto crashes
The commitment was made by the Zonal Commanding officer, Bauchi Zone Rs. 12, ACM, Imoh J. Etuk during the 2019 Special Marshals sectoral workshop held yesterday at the Development Exchange Centre (DEC), Bauchi.
He further warned regular road safety officials and Special Marshals to desist from intimidating road users but rather ensure traffic rules are obeyed.
Imoh Etuk commended the contribution of Special Marshals on reducing roads accident but advised them to improve their performance by organising enlightenment campaign programs and projecting the activities of FRSC.
He, however, noted with concern the high rate of accidents recorded on highways across the country, stressing that such workshops will definitely checkmate the unnecessary road crashes.
“The rate of death through road accident is very alarming, this workshop will bring out solutions towards avoiding unnecessary road crashes due to overspeeding, overtaking”, he said.
