FRSC comes up with 2 smart ways to stop accidents
A strategy, known as the passengers watch, and road audits are the two ways the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) intends to reduce accidents.
According to the Public Relations Officer (PRO), FRSC, Mr Bisi Kazeem, the agency intends to use a new strategy, known as the passengers watch, and road audits to ensure safe roads.
He shed light on these in a recent interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
"We are also going to use what is known as passengers watch where you find out that somebody will be in your vehicle without you suspecting is a road safety officer.
And once you are misbehaving and that person tried to caution you and when you prove stubborn, he or she will get you arrested and the person will face the consequence.
We also have traffic calming control and Safety Engineering Department which conduct road audit to identify where there will be need for rehabilitation, probably repairs.
If it is Federal roads we recommend to Federal Ministry of Works and Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA); and if it is States roads, we recommend to State Ministry of Works,’’ Kazeem said.
