“It was the 1st Sector Commander’s Special Intervention Monthly Inter-Agency Patrol Christened, “Operation Crash Negative Road Use Behaviors,” in Asaba Delta State.

“A total of 31 traffic violators were arrested, for a total of 42 offences and booked. Eight vehicles were booked for not installing speed limiting device (SLD) to regulate their speed, which is one of the major causes of RTC in Delta. On the state highways, one vehicle for overloading, one vehicle booked for projected load in excess of prescribed limit (PLE) while one mini truck carrying goods and passengers was also arrested.

“Highlights of the operations include operation beyond the road where the blood pressure, sugar level and other vital signs of arrested motorists were checked. Offenders passed through public enlightenment before payment. Enforcement was with officers of the NPF,” he said.

Eshiet emphasized that the exercise was able to reawaken road safety consciousness in motorists along Asaba-Benin highway, adding regrettably that many overloaded vehicles passed through the town to evade arrest.

“I, therefore, urge all road users to reawaken their proper road use safety consciousness and comply with traffic laws and regulations so as to minimise if not eradicate RTC on our highway,” he added.
