Road Accident

How To Reduce The Rate Of Avoidable Deaths And Injuries Caused By Accidents On Nigerian Roads

There are human, mechanical, and natural causes of accidents but in this part of the world, human factors like; driving beyond the speed limit, drinking while driving, overloading, disobeying the traffic rules, etc have constituted more than 70% of the road crashes in Nigeria. Officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps were at the scene of an accident in Ibadan on Saturday where 9 people lost their lives and 15 other people were injured. They noted that the accident was a head-on collision between 2 passenger buses that negotiated a bend while on top speed. The FRSC officials have warned road users to always obey the traffic lights, concentrate fully and avoid too much speed while driving.

It is important to fix the vehicles' mechanical problems before putting them on the roads. Brake lights, hazard lights, reverse lights, pointers, and other electricals should be in perfect condition to reduce the rate of avoidable deaths and injuries caused by accidents on Nigerian roads.
