The FRSC constantly warns drivers on the dangers of speeding and driving under the influence.
This is more so with the poor state of disrepair and/or ongoing renovation of most interstate roads. The Sagamu-Benin-Ore expressway is notorious for the often tragic road accidents that occur on it.
As part of efforts to avoid this, the FRSC, today, said it would deploy over 150 personnel on the road.
Mr Umoru Abdullahi, the Unit Commander, Ore Command, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the deployment was to check the excesses of motorists.
According to him, impatient driving, more than any other reason, causes road accidents.

“Over 150 personnel will be deployed on the Sagamu-Ore-Bennin expressway to ensure that motorists reduce their speed and comply with traffic rules,’’ the unit commander said.
He urged motorists not to speed so as to avert accidents during the festivities.
