Abuja- Corps Commander Stella Uchegbu, Public Education Officer, Federal Road Safety Commission, (FRSC), said the agency would deploy more logistic support to ensure safety on the nation’s roads during the yuletide.
Uchegbu said this on Friday during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
She said the logistic support would be used to complement efforts of the FRSC personnel during the period.
“We will raise the bar on deployment with acquisition of additional heavy duty tow trucks from the World Bank and other logistic support such as radar guns and alcholysers.
“This is to regulate the speed at which motorists move and test the status of drivers who ply the roads during the yuletide.
“ We have already identified these critical corridors and this will determine the status of our deployment of personnel and logistics to ensure easy passage for all road users,” she said.
Uchegbu also said that the agency would continue with its air surveillance of key corridors of the nation during the yuletide, and it would also work with sister agencies to achieve road safety.
NAN recalls that the Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, had recently said that the agency would work with the Nigeria Customs Service in order to clear traffic gridlock in Apapa, Lagos.
He also said that the two agencies had been working together through data sharing on vehicles in Nigeria which had yielded results in the area of recovering stolen vehicles. (NAN)
