Road Crash during Ember months: Oyeyemi Tasks FRSC Marshals

the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Tuesday directed its zonal and sector commanders to evolve improved strategies that would ensure effective traffic management and reduction in road accidents in the country.

The FRSC Corps Marshal, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, gave the directive at the third quarter corps operators’ meeting in Abuja.

He said that zonal commanders should ensure that component commands tackle critical offences with desired vigour during the ember months.

Oyeyemi noted that the FRSC operators’ meeting was a prelude to the series of planning and technical interactions toward a hitch-free end-of-the- year patrols.

He said that it was particularly timely, as it would provide the platform for participants to interact on internal response plans toward the escalating security threats across the country.

The corps marshal stated that it was important for commanding officers to ensure that public education and advocacy were stepped up by both regular and special marshals.

According to him, “You must introduce measures that will restrain our operatives from negative tendencies.

“Aggressive public enlightenment targeted at mitigating health risks, associated with road traffic carnage, must be put in place.

“You must also ensure prompt response to road emergencies and the follow up on crash victims.

“Focus on the speed reduction strategies as a means of bringing down crashes and fatalities, ” he said.

Oyeyemi noted that all patrol vehicles, ambulances and other equipment would be put in order for the highest enforcement capacity attainable.

He stated that COVID-19 remained a major life-threatening challenge, urging zonal and sector commanders to continue to educate field command operatives on the need to take personal responsibility for their safety.

He said that they woulc achieve that by simply accepting the trend and complying with the directives of the Presidential Tasks Force on COVID-19.
