The Federal Road Safety Corps has deployed 755 personnel for Christmas and New Year special patrols in Delta State.
The state Sector Commander, FRSC Mr. Bassey Eshiet, gave these figures in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Saturday in Asaba, the state capital.
Essiet spoke with NAN at a rally to mark the commencement of 2023 Operation Zero Tolerance to Road Traffic Crashes on Friday.
He said that the operation would run from December 15, 2023, to January 15, 2024, adding that all regular and special marshals would be fully involved.
”The objectives of the operation are to reduce road traffic crashes to the barest minimum, have prompt responses to road crashes as well as ensure quick removal of traffic obstructions.
”About 345 special marshals, 18 patrol vehicles, two power bikes, five ambulances, and one tow trucks will be deployed for the operation,” he said.
“Motorists should prioritise their safety, avoid night journeys and take rest for 30 minutes after every four-hour drive.
“All road users should shun bad road habits such as not wearing seatbelts, use of phone while driving, excessive speeding, use of worn-out tyres, overloading, wrongful overtaking and parking, etc.
“All road users and travellers should set out for their journey in time to create enough time to attend to any unforeseen circumstance or development during the journey,” the sector commander advised.
