“The massive deployment of our personnel, both Regular and Special Marshals, during the Easter period helped to reduce cases of accidents.

“Our personnel were able to check the excesses of drivers who were fond of flouting traffic rules and regulations, which sometimes resulted in crashes,” he said.

The sector commander appealed to motorists to continue to adhere strictly to traffic rules and regulations, not only during festive periods but at all times.

He reiterated the commitment of the FRSC to continue to collaborate with other sister agencies to make the nation’s highways safer for the motoring public.
