FRSC partners with tricycle owners to reduce road accident

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Kwara Command, says it is partnering with tricycle owners in the state to reduce road traffic crash fatality and injuries.

Basambo said that as part of the year 2024 strategies towards the reduction of road crashes in Kwara, the sector command decided to partner with commercial motorists.

She said that the sector commander visited the state secretariat of the Tricycle Owners Association of Nigeria (TOAN) in Ilorin during the association’s State Executive Council meeting.

“The Sector Commander, Corps Commander Stephen Dawulung, called on Tricycle Owners Association of Nigeria (TOAN), Kwara Chapter, to join hands with the Command towards enhancing the safety of tricycle riders, passengers, and other road users.

“He said that tricycle is one of the means of transportation in the state and the riders were at higher risks of road traffic injuries and deaths, compared to other motor vehicles.

“He therefore said that they need to be cautious and avoid certain unwholesome road traffic practices that can further jeopardize their safety and those of other road users,” the PRO said.

According to the sector commander, these practices include speed, overloading, conveyance of projected materials, and meandering from one lane to another.

The sector commander emphasized that adherence to road traffic regulations was a must for all road users.

Responding, the Chairman of TOAN, Alhaji Saliu Gidado, appreciated the sector commander for the visit and promised that the association would continue to adhere to traffic rules and regulations.
