3 major causes of accidents!
Here are three major causes of accidents from the Federal Road Safety Corps.
According to the Ijebu-Ode Unit Commander of FRSC, Mr Isah Seidu, error of judgment by motorists who overtake, bad roads, and driving against traffic, are the reasons why people have accidents.
"Error of judgment in traffic has been identified as deadly and has led to many crashes on our roads. This occurs when a driver fails to calculate correctly the speed of an approaching vehicle while attempting to overtake a vehicle ahead of him. Where an assumption is relied upon for judgment, there are bound to be fatal mistakes which could lead to road traffic crashes. As a driver, you must exercise extreme caution and patience before committing to overtake as the manoeuvre can backfire with any slight misjudgment. It is important we recognise that there is no short cut to safety other than to obey traffic rules and regulations for us to stay alive."
He made all of these revelations in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State.
