The Lugbe Unit com­mand of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has put on mea­sures in place to tackle the incessant incidents of hit and run accidents that oc­cur along the ever busy Umar Musa Express Way in Lugbe.
The unit commander in-charge of the area, Assistant Corps Commander (ACC) A’ishat Sa’adu stated this while calling on motorists to exercise caution while plying the route.
She warned commercial drivers to desist from in­discriminate parking along both side of the road, em­phasising that the com­mand under her watch would collaborate with sis­ter agencies to bring viola­tors to book.
The FRSC officer enjoined the motoring public to avoid driving against traffic as well as driving under the influ­ence of drugs and other re­lated substances that cause avoidable accidents.
The unit commander also reiterated commitment to sustain advocacy cam­paign on sensitising the residents of Lugbe and its environs on need to using pedestrian bridge at all time while crossing the road the express way to avoid being nook down by vehicles.
She called on the motor­ists to always maintain the recommended 100 percent speed limit per hour and ensure that their wipers, breaks, traffic indicators and lights are functioning as de­sired, especially during this rainy season.
The unit commander re­vealed that the corps could continue to work in synergy with leadership of Okada riders and NURTW with a view to checkmating their operations in the area just as she charged them to report their grievances to the ap­propriate authorities instead of taking laws into their hands.-The Authority
