The Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps, Dauda Ali Biu, has cautioned all road users, especially campaign convoy drivers, to avoid speeding and recklessness on wheels, reports

He also warned them to drive in conformity with established road traffic regulations so as to avoid incidences of road traffic crashes.

A press statement made available to 

ITREALMS by Assistant Corps Marshal, Corps Public Education Officer, FRSC Headquarters, Abuja, Mr. Bisi Kazeem, quoted the Corps Marshal as giving this caution while reacting to the series of crashes that have occurred since the commencement of the electioneering campaigns involving political party convoys and other convoys which have led to preventable loss of lives.

Dauda Biu registered his dissatisfaction while stating that despite repeated warnings, cautions and appeals that the Corps has made to these drivers, they still violate established laws, drive against speed limit and engage in reckless driving behaviour, that are in total contradiction to best road use practice.

He also appreciated the orderly manner with which some of the motorists conducted their political engagements in strict adherence to road traffic rules.

According to him, the Corps is determined to entrench ease of movement and safety for vehicular and human traffic as Commanding Officers have been directed to enhance visibility of patrol teams in identified strategic locations.

"Part of the efforts the Corps has put in place include the deployment of more operational vehicles and manpower to combat envisioned traffic gridlocks that would be occasioned by series of political activities geared towards the oncoming general elections," he said.
