Federal Road Safety Corps Partners Religious Bodies To Better Road Culture
The federal road safety corps is going into partnership with religious bodies across the country to advocate better road culture as a first step to reducing the alarming rate of accidents on the nation’s highways.
This was the outcome of what was called ''save-a-victim meeting between the FRSC corps marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi and president of the Christian association of Nigeria, Ayo Oritsjafor on Tuesday in Abuja.
The meeting centred around the unruly behaviour of vehicle users, the upsurge on avoidable accidents, and the increasing cases of drunk driving.
It was resolved that as part of existing legal measures, religious leaders in mosques and churches should be employed to propagate the essence of driving to stay alive.
More than one thousand five hundred accident cases were recorded in the first quarter of twenty-sixteen, with the attendant loss of lives and property.
