On March 17, 2016, the Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Boboye Oyeyemi, encouraged women to enforce a road safety mentality in their homes.

Making the plea at the National Stadium Abuja, Oyeyemi said this is important because the woman's role is very essential to the FRSC's road safety campaign.

"As we join them in observing this year’s International Women’s Day, I wish to appeal to the women to always encourage members of their families to obey traffic rules and regulations.

We in the FRSC are confident that if women deploy their enormous influence on the family to encourage their husbands, children and wards to obey traffic rules and regulations whenever they are travelling, our campaign for safer road environment would have been accomplished.

Accordingly, I enjoin you to ensure that whenever you travel with your family, make sure your children are properly fastened with seatbelt at the backseat. You must also ensure that the driver does not violate the speed limits or fail to wear his seatbelt with the passengers at the front and backseat," he stated.

The minority (36.4%) agree with the FRSC.

I agree with the minority because the woman's role is very important to the family structure.
