The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has said it would deploy over 1,000 personnel to ensure free-flow of traffic during the 2017 yuletide in Anambra State, reports ITRealms.

The corps’ Commander in the state, Sunday Ajayi, made this known recently in Onitsha and said that the command was prepared to work with other security agencies to increase enforcement during the period and has concluded plans to deploy some 1,000 personnel and 400 Special Marshals to various traffic flash-points.

“We are going to use road safety club members to assist in traffic control in addition to personnel from the Red Cross, Operation Clean and Healthy Anambra and the state’s Traffic Management Agency.

“We will be thick on the road. I urge motorists to exhibit good attitudes, obey traffic rules and must be willing to assist others while using the road. Besides ensuring hitch-free traffic during the period, our target enforcement is on seat belt violation, use of phone while driving, overload, speeding and one way drive, among others.

In addition, he said, FRSC presence will be at flash points where they are expected have road blocks, including Tarzan junction, Onitsha; old Onitsha-Awka road, Nnobi, Ekwulobia and Bridgehead.
