He decried the rate of death arising from road crashes in the state and reiterated the corps’ commitment to safety on the road, during and after the yuletide season.
“Our main focus is going to be on the highway, which is the east-west road that links Bayelsa, Rivers, Delta and other states across the country.

“The FRSC is a partner in progress with other security agencies, including the Police, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), the Bayelsa Security Management Agency among others.

’’We are going to work with them in order to achieve the desired success.

‘’They should avoid speeding, overloading, drink-driving and ensure that their vehicles are in good condition before driving them on the highways.
“This year’s campaign is targeting operation zero crash,” he said.

On safety awareness, Igwe said the corps had sustained its enlightenment campaign on tips to ensure safe driving culture and for the motorists to be safety conscious on the wheel.
“Our campaign has gone to the grassroots; we have had series of sensitisation programmes with the Tricycle Operators and NURTW within and outside the state capita. I believe all the road users are going to cooperate with us during the season.”
