The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Ondo State Command, said it has arrested no fewer than 28 traffic offenders within one month across the state.
The State Sector Commander of FRSC, Mr Ezekiel Son Allah, disclosed this to The Hope Metro in a phone interview.
SonAllah who said the arrest was made in Akure, the state capital and its environs, warned that driving against traffic is a very serious violation.
“We have already arrested 28 offenders and I want to appeal to motorists to avoid driving through one way.
“It is something like this that easily leads to crashes and usually results to fatal accidents.
“It’s more common with motorcycle riders. But we are still appealing to every road user against using one way because of its nearness to their destinations.
SonAllah charged motorists to drive as good and trained drivers while ensuring they navigate to the appropriate part of the road towards maintaining the right way.
He advised, “This is ember period. Don’t drink while driving. Respect FRSC officials and other security agencies on the highways because they are not there to victimize you, but to protect and save you from unforeseen circumstances.”
