Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Abubakar Sadiq Isah

The FCT Sec­tor Com­mand of the Federal Road Safety Com­mis­sion (FRSC), Wed­nes­day, warned mo­torists, es­pe­cially commercial driv­ers con­vey­ing trav­ellers for the Easter cel­e­bra­tions, against dan­ger­ous driv­ing.

The Sec­tor Com­man­der Mrs. Su­san Ajenge, who gave the warn­ing when she launched “Oper­a­tion Easter Pa­trol” cam­paign at Giri, Gwag­wal­ada Area Coun­cil, said the ex­er­cise was aimed at cur­tail­ing the num­ber of road traf­fic ac­ci­dents dur­ing the fes­tiv­i­ties.

She stressed the need to also en­lighten driv­ers, com­muters and the gen­eral pub­lic on the dan­gers of over-speed­ing, dan­ger­ous over­tak­ing, over­load­ing and us­ing cell phones while driv­ing.

She ob­served that dur­ing fes­tive pe­ri­ods, mo­torists, es­pe­cially commercial driv­ers, are al­ways in a hurry to get to reach their des­ti­na­tion, leading to avoid­able loss of lives.

Also speak­ing, the Act­ing Zonal Com­man­der, FRSC, Zone 7, Abuja, Mr. David Mende, im­plored the com­mis­sion’s of­fi­cials to al­ways en­lighten driv­ers and pas­sen­gers on the safety mea­sures on the high­ways.

He also in­structed them to do their work with­out fear or favour, call­ing on them to be po­lite to mo­torists.
