Mr Muhammad Husaini, the Osun Sector Commander of
the FRSC, said on Monday that 31 deaths were recorded
from road traffic crashes in the state between June and
July.
Husaini made this disclosure while speaking to the News
Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Osogbo.
He also said that 36 road traffic crashes occurred within the
period under review while 279 persons were involved.
Husaini attributed the crashes to over speeding, poor
condition of roads and failure by motorists to comply with
road traffic rules and regulations.
“Some of the accidents recorded could have been avoided
if the motorists were driving within the speed limit.
“Most of the roads are not in good condition and if drivers
were observing the speed limit, they would have the
advantage of avoiding ditches and potholes on the roads,”
he said.
He, however, lauded the Osun government for redressing
the situation through road construction and rehabilitation.
Husaini called on motorists to observe road safety rules,
vowing that anyone caught violating the law would be
apprehended and prosecuted (NAN)
