The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), RS 7.17 Kuje Unit, has cautioned motorists in the area against reckless driving during the “ember months” to help reduce accidents to the barest minimum.

The FRSC Unit Commander (UC) Kuje, Mr Eugene Nwabuike, while launching the campaign in Kuje urged motorists to maintain safe speed and obey traffic rules and regulations during and after the ember period.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the theme of the 2022 campaign is “Avoid Speeding, Overloading And Unsafe Tyres to Arrive Alive.”

Nwabuike said the essence of the campaign is to ensure that accidents are reduced on the roads during the ember months when travelers will embark on journeys during the Christmas and New year celebrations.

According to him, the 2022 ember campaign is targeted at introducing the best global road use practices to the people of the area and the nation at large for safe driving.

He further explained that the essence of the FRSC ember months campaign is to always educate motorists on how to safely use the road and prevent unnecessary crashes.

“The extensive public education this period is expected to produce zero crashes or zero death within the ember months and beyond in Kuje.

“We are going to carry out enforcement on all traffic rules and regulations within this period in Kuje Area Council.

“Road safety is a collective responsibility and to enjoy quality road experience, we must shun all forms of anti-safety vices relating to lawless, reckless, negligent and impatient among others,” he said.

The Unit commander stressed that the Kuje FRSC, had put some measures in place to checkmate the ugly trend of speeding, dangerous driving and other road vices which often resulted in road traffic crashes.

He thanked the traditional rulers, and sister security agencies in Kuje for their complementary roles towards achieving one common goal of nation building through safety on Nigeria’s roads.

“If motorists observe traffic rules and regulations, avoid speeding and ensure that their vehicles are in good condition before setting out, there will be little or no accidents.

“Road safety is a collective responsibility and to ensure hitch-free ember months, we must cooperate with the FRSC and shun all forms of traffic law infringement.

“It is, therefore, wise to maintain safe speed and embrace minimum safety standards as most road crashes are caused by human factors,” he added.

The Chairman, National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Kuje Chapter, Alh. Nda’ama Ismaila, appreciated the FRSC for the awareness campaign in ensuring road safety in the area.

He assured that the union will always support and cooperate with the Command to ensure that its members obey the traffic rules and the roads are effective and functional.

Stakeholders at the event were, the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), Nigerian Correctional Services (NCS), the Police, DSS, Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), NYSC, VIO, NURTW and the Nigerian Army. (NAN)
