Yule­tide: Ogun TRACE cau­tions mo­torists against speed­ing

The Punch - - AUTO FAMOUS -

As the fes­tive pe­riod ap­proaches, the Ogun Traf­fic Com­pli­ance and En­force­ment Corps has ad­vised mo­torists to avoid speed­ing to avoid ac­ci­dents.

TRACE ad­vised mo­torists to strictly ad­here to the spec­i­fied speed limit to stay alive.

A TRACE com­man­der, Mrs Temi­tope Oseni, stated this in an in­ter­view with the News Agency of Nige­ria on Fri­day.

Oseni said the ad­vice had be­come nec­es­sary in or­der to avoid ac­ci­dents that could lead to un­nec­es­sary loss of lives and prop­erty dur­ing the fes­tive pe­riod.

“I want to urge all mo­torists to com­ply with the stip­u­lated speed limit and avoid driv­ing in a di­rec­tion pro­hib­ited by road traf­fic laws.

“They should also fas­ten their seat belts to re­duce fa­tal­ity rate in case of an ac­ci­dent,” she said.

The com­man­der im­plored mo­torists to in­crease their level of con­cen­tra­tion and shun drunk­driv­ing that might en­dan­ger their lives and those of other road users.

Oseni added any erring driver would be pe­nalised and also asked pedes­tri­ans to be care­ful while walk­ing on the road, es­pe­cially while cross­ing busy high­ways.
