 Be safety conscious as you drive – Osun FRSC to motorists - Eid-el-Kabir FRSC

The Osun Sector Command of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has called on motorists and road users to be safety conscious and do everything possible to protect themselves even as they celebrate the Eid-El-Kabir festival.

He has also maintained that drivers plying motorways in the state must possess valid driving licence because it was now a necessity for professional drivers irrespective of the type of vehicle being driven.

Making this known at the sensitisation rally to create awareness for motorists towards the coming festival on Thursday, Deputy Corps Commander, Olusanjo Olumatanmi said the directive to commence the Sallah special patrol operations slated from July 16 to July 25, 2021was from the Commission National Headquarters, Abuja.

Olumatanmi advised motorists and road users in the state not to indulge in excesses or let the festivity get into their heads as they make use of the roads before, during and after the celebrations.

He maintained that there is a need to sensitise the populace due to the forecast of high traffic for the Eid-El Kabir adding that the FRSC had made plans to synergise with sister security agencies for better deployment to man flashpoints where gridlocks were expected due to high inflow and outflow of traffic and persons for easy movements.

The Deputy Sector Commander also noted that the sensitisation is nationwide, where every field command is expected to do campaigns.
