The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) in Plateau has set aside a week to remember victims of Road Traffic Crashes (RTC).
Plateau sector dedicates week to victims of Road Traffic Crashes (RTC)
A week has been set aside to remember those who lost their lives in road crashes, pray for the victims, sensitise motorists and the general public on the need to obey traffic rules and regulations.
Speaking on this on Friday, November 13th, the Acting Sector Commander, Mr Ibrahim Bello, said the FRSC was using the period to pray for the victims, sensitise motorists and the general public on the need to obey traffic rules and regulations.
“The RTC week is a time slated for us to pray for those who died as result of road accidents. We are also going to use this period to create more awareness on the need for people to ensure strict adherence to traffic rules and regulations."
"It is very disheartening to see drivers plying highways with bad vehicles, especially those with worn out tyres. It is also not good for drivers to engage in speeding, overloading and dangerous overtaking, while on the road. This is why as we pray for the departed souls; we are equally using this medium to warn motorists to desist from any act that could lead to road carnage, because life is precious.’’
Activities of the RTC week include Jumat prayers at the Jos Central Mosque, an Awareness Campaign at the Bauchi Central Motor Park, a Road Walk, and a Church Service at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Zaria Road, on Sunday, Nov. 15.
