The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has stated that it expects an accident free yuletide in Cross River State, pleading with motorists to obey all traffic rules and imbibe the spirit of safety on the roads.

This charge was made by the FRSC Corp Marshall, Boboye Oyeyemi at the 2016 Mega Rally of the Cross River State Sector Command held in Calabar the Cross River State Capital.

The Corp Marshall who was represented by the Zonal Commanding Officer Port Harcourt, ACM Jonas Agwu, said it was due to the need to reduce the number of road clashes that they had to introduce speed limiting device which kicked off in October 1st and aggressive implementation billed to start from 1st January, 2017.

Also speaking, the Sector Commander, Rs6.2 Calabar, CC. Ikechukwu Lawrence said the mega rally was deliberately instituted by the Commission to ensure on the road safety mechanism.

He went on to express happiness with the turn-out at the rally stating that it proves how successful the rally has been.

On the mobile courts, CC. Lawrence added that it has aided the Commission as most motorist prefer to do the right thing by getting their correct papers and license rather than face the courts.

He pleaded for continuous support from motorists saying that safe guarding the road is a partnership they have entered with drivers.

On their part, the Unified Drivers Association of Cross River State expressed their unalloyed support for the FRSC, especially in its vision of “crashing crashers” out of the road.

The association which spoke through their Chairman, Comrade Thomas Okon however pleaded with them to consider exempting intra-city drivers when enforcing the speed limiting device especially considering the economic situation.
