The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has called for the cooperation of motorists to support the commission’s effort in addressing frequent road crashes.
FCT sector commander of the commission, Ayuba Wobin, stated this when he paid a visit to road traffic crash victims at Wuse General Hospital, as part of activities marking this year’s United Nations Day of remembering road traffic crash victims.
Wobin said crashes resulting to death and injuries could be avoided if motorists cooperate with FRSC officials by adhering to the instructions they give to them.
He advised pedestrians to always use the pedestrian bridges whenever they are crossing the high ways, saying where there are no such bridges they should observe the traffic before crossing the roads.
“For the public who don’t have vehicles and want to cross the road, pedestrian bridges are there, don’t say you can run faster than vehicle, please use the bridges,” he said.
The FCT sector commander said cooperating with the corps was the best means of addressing most of the crashes being experienced on high ways.
He warned motorists that do not obey traffic rules, and who cause crashes while plying routes, that the corps won’t take it likely with any driver found driving against the traffic.
The United Nations day for the remembrance of accident victims is marked every third week of November to remember loved ones who died or got injured in road accidents globally. The theme for this year is “2020 target, reduce road fatality and serious injuries by 50 percent”.
