The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has named the three deadliest highways in the contry. This was made known by the FRSC’s Public Education Officer, Mr. Jonas Agwu, during a media briefing in Abuja.

According to Agwu the Lagos-Ibadan expressway records the highest number of road traffic crashes in the country. The FRSC spokesman also identified Kaduna-Zaria and Abuja-Lokoja roads as second most deadliest and third respectively. He thereby warned motorists and other road users to have a change of attitude towards lessening the spate of crashes in Nigeria.

Generally, the FRSC spokesperson noted that “Lagos-Ibadan, Benin-Ore, Ogbomosho-Ilorin, Lokoja-Abuja, Enugu-Otukpo and Kaduna-Zaria are crash-prone routes.”

He also announced that the FRSC will suspend traffic rules enforcement between September 10 to 14, for a week-long intensive nationwide safety awareness campaign, appealing to motorists and other road users not to use the period to violate traffic rules. In his words, “As we sheath our swords in terms of no booking, from Monday to Friday, motorists should not see it as avenue to drive and phone.”
