THE Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Kebbi has deployed 500 personnel to ensure smooth Eid-El-Fitir celebration, the Sector Commander in the state, Alhaji Shehu Umar, has said.
Umar made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Birnin Kebbi on Wednesday.
He said that the command would monitor the conduct of road users to check road crashes during the sallah festivities.
“We will focus on traffic control, speeding, dangerous driving and overtaking, failure to use and instal speed limit, drunken driving, among others.”
He said that the personnel would also monitor drivers to ensure that motorists respect traffic rules and regulations.
“We will assign some of the personnel to Jega-Sokoto-Tambuwal Road, Jega-Yauri Road, Koko-Zuru Road and Birnin Kebbi-Jega Road as well as Argungu-Sokoto Road among others.”
Umar urged motorists to adhere to traffic rules in order to avoid accidents.
He warned motorists against overloading and dangerous driving, stressing that anyone found wanting would be dealt with accordingly.
“Our primary concern is to prevent road crashes by mobilising road users to desist from dangerous driving, especially overtaking at sharp bend, among others,” he said.
