He said the aim of the campaign is to sensitized Motorists, passengers and the general public on the ways to reduce the rate of accidents, especially during the ember period.

The zonal Commandant explained that road accidents are the main monsters that kill more than any kind of disease.

He said overspeeding accounts for over 85% of road accidents in Nigeria.

Omiko advised motorists and travellers especially in this Ember Months to avoid passenger’s and goods overloading, night driving, and obey road traffic rules and signs.

He said, ” Night travel is one of the most dangerous adventures one can undertake, this is because of the inherent dangers associated with it, which includes driver fatigue, vulnerability to attacks, poor vision and absence of First Responders/Rescue in case of a vehicle crash,” he stated.
