EKET (AKWA IBOM) – The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Eket Unit Command, said it had deployed 150 personnel to monitor vehicular traffic on the highways throughout the Easter celebrations in the area.
“Easter is by the corner, the command is on the ground and our men are watching traffic offenders because movement of motorists is very high now; people are travelling for the Easter.
“The men are on ground watching over speeding, over loading and driver’s license violation. Easter is the period people go for fake drivers’ license and emergency driver’s license to enable them travel.’’
“The maximum speed limit on the highway is 100 km per hour, anything above 100 km is not permitted and offenders will be arrested and prosecuted.’’
He maintained that the command would strive towards reducing excessive speeding before, during and after the Easter.
He said that the commission had acquired equipment that would detect those who use speed above 100 km per hours during the period.
He advised motorists to adhere to traffic rules so as to prevent road crashes on the highway.
“I advise the public to use the road with decorum; they should not turn our roads to racing tracks,’’ said the commandant. (NAN)
