The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has urged motorists and passengers to exercise patience due to anticipated increase in vehicles on the roads as Federal Government lifts ban on interstate travel.

The FRSC Sector Commander in Enugu State, Mr Ogbonnaya Kalu, gave the advice while speaking with the Newsmen in Enugu on Wednesday.

NAN reports that for more than three months, the Federal Government had imposed a ban on interstate travel as part of measures meant to contain spread of COVID-19 in the country.

Kalu noted that exercising patience by all road users had become imperative following the rush most motorists would engage themselves in.

“I will advise all road users, which includes motorists and passengers to be patient and avoid rush as most people might want to be in a haste to get to where they are going to after few months of being inactive on the road.

“Drivers should not speed; while passengers should also live up to their responsibility of cautioning their drivers when he or she speeds or drives recklessly.

“Drivers should drive with a sense of moderation, especially as the rains are here.

“It is quite clear that the roads are slippery now and one must exercise some level of caution.

“Also, as long distance transport companies had parked their vehicles for few months; it is good they do servicing on their fleets.

“There is a need to check tyres, lighting system, wipers, oils and radiators, among others and ensure that they are in top working condition,’’ he added.

The sector commander noted that his command would put more efforts on enforcement as more vehicles plied major road corridors within the state to ensure safety of all.

Kalu said that FRSC officers and men were still within the state boundary areas to ensure safety compliance of all vehicles crossing over to the state.

“We will also ensure that transport companies and drivers maintain Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) protocol on physical distancing in parks and number of passengers being carried at a time.

“FRSC will ensure rules of wearing of face masks by all in all parks.

“While transport companies provide temperature checking device and alcohol-based sanitisers or hand washing devices for passengers,’’ he said.
