FRSC set to withdraw from state roads

THE Corps Marshal and Chief Executive of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Mr Boboye Oyeyemi, has disclosed plans by the corps to withdraw its operational activities from the state roads across the federation in order to concentrate more on the federal highways.
He also disclosed that the corps was targeting 15 per cent reduction of road crashes and 25 per cent reduction of fatalities in 2016.
Oyeyemi, who made this known on Tuesday in Abuja while briefing newsmen on the 2015 ember months patrol and unveiling of the 2016 strategic goals, explained that the corps had already commenced training of State Traffic Management Agencies (STMAs) in some states to take over the state roads while FRSC moves to the federal highways.

He also said that there would be no going back on the April 1 deadline for enforcement of installation of speed limiting devices by commercial vehicles in Nigeria.
He said: “We are training State Traffic Management Agencies to operate on the roads in the states so that we move to the federal highways. This, however, does not mean that we cannot operate on the state roads. If there is need for intervention once in a while, we can assist them.”
