The Edo sector of Federal Road Safety Commission(FRSC) is urging traders to stop displaying their goods on road sides as it leads to both traffic and loss of lives.

According to Mr Oluwasusi Familoni, the State Sector Commander, road side trading along major streets or roads has become a major cause of traffic gridlock in the state.

While speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), he said it was important for traders to stop this as it could lead to accidents.

"The FRSC is working on modalities to collaborate with traders’ union to curb the excesses of street trading. This collaboration is informed by directives from the FRSC national headquarters."
