The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Sunday urged motorists to embrace safety ideals, sustain positive driving behaviours and adhere to all traffic rules and regulations.

The FRSC corps marshal, Dauda Biu, made the call in a statement by the corps’ Public Education Officer (CPEO), Assistant Corps Marshal (ACM), Bisi Kazeem, to felicitate Nigerians on the 63rd independence anniversary.

Mr Biu stressed the need to have a crash-free anniversary.

He said this was in line with the efforts put in place to ensure the free flow of traffic and the safety of the lives and property of road users.

“The FRSC is aware of how much the country cherishes its independence, going by the series of festivities that form part of the celebration, and warmly aligns in totality with the entire population in this historic moment,” he said.

Mr Biu admonished motorists to apply all cautionary measures to achieve a crash-free occasion.

He also gave the assurance of full deployment of operational facilities across traffic-prone areas to ensure the hitch-free movement of people and goods.

To forestall all incidences of mishaps on the road, Mr Biu said he had directed commanding officers across the country to ensure the full deployment of personnel.

“There are also logistics for high visibility and to ensure prompt removal of obstructions and effective traffic management,” he said.

The corps marshal wished the entire country a peaceful and safe celebration while calling on the motoring public to utilise the FRSC toll-free number, 122, and put a call through in the event of any crash, obstruction, or emergency for a prompt response.
