The Ondo State Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps has commenced ember months safety campaign in the state.

The state  Deputy Corps Commandant ,FRSC, in charge of Operations, Mr. Olusegun Ogungbemide stated this in  an interview with The Hope in his office.

According to him, his men have been  going out to sensitise the public on the safety of motorists on  the highway.

He said, “by virtue of directive from  the head office, we have been mandated to carry out campaign on Ember months safety.

Our belief and African mentality is that  ember period  attracts lots of road accidents.

We refuse  to admit the wrong belief  that ember months are the precousous of accidents.

He noted that the only factor responsible  is that  people plying the roads were not careful enough.  January does  not differ from December. “We refuse to believe the fact that towards the end of the year, people are expected to die by crashes. “

What we are doing is to build on the  activities we started in January. That is why we tried to keep the roads  safe and sensitise the general public on the polices we have put in place to assist the public throughout this year.”

He said drivers should appreciate that people’s lives are in their hands and they must reduce overspeeding and not to be distracted. He said these are the areas they emphasise on so that they don’t get involved in road crash.

 “We also have Shagamu -Ijebuode- Ore -Benin. We as well have five units in Ondo. We have our emergency ambulances in various units that get to accident scene as fast as 15 minùtes across  Ondo state.

” With all these in place and the campaign we are starting we want to believe our roads would be free.
