Easter: FRSC targets 5 per cent accident reduction
Owerri -The Imo Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Mr David Mendie, has said the commission’s Easter public enlightenment campaign was aimed at reducing the rate of accident by five percent during the celebration.
Mendie said: “It is also to disabuse their minds that accidents are caused by blood-sucking demons. Accident is generally caused by human factors and not demons.
“What we often refer to as mechanical fault usually results from the failure of the human being to fix his vehicle before embarking on a journey.
“Vehicles do not drive themselves, they are driven by human beings.”
He advised motorists to avoid over-speeding, drunkenness while driving and putting unworthy vehicles on the road.
