Wobin noted that some of the drivers of these buses do not obey traffic rules, warning that such activities will no longer be tolerated.

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) says it will soon commence the enforcement of a uniform colour for school buses in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Mr Gora Wobin, the FRSC, FCT Sector Commander, disclosed this on Saturday in Abuja, during a stakeholders town hall meeting with school proprietors.

The town hall meeting was organised by the Lugbe unit command, of the FRSC, headed by its commander, Mr Ameen Adewale.

Wobin said that the move became necessary for easy identification of school buses by the FRSC, adding that it will augur well for proprietors to paint their school buses in the approved colour.

“The fact that we have not enforced it does not mean we are not going to do it, the information has been in the public domain since 2014,” he said.

According to him, there is a prototype of the colour in the headquarters of the FRSC, while advising them to check in order to be sure of the approved colour.

He said that identification of school buses was keyed, noting that the FRSC had had to intercept a bus with kidnapped school children, with the driver claiming they were going on an excursion.

The sector commander added that if it were to be a uniform coloured bus, the corps would have been able to detect immediately.

He then urged the proprietors to ensure a uniform colour for their school busses.

“It is advisable for all our school buses to be painted in an approved school colour, it is a law and a regulation by the government and must be obeyed,” he said.

He said that rather than use force, the FRSC had embraced dialogue with school owners to paint their busses in the approved colour.

Wobin said that this would go a long way to help in ensuring that any school bus driver caught flouting the law, could be allowed to go and drop the children off and then arrested soon after.

He, however, said that if school proprietors had any strong reasons why the law must not be implemented, they were free to write to the appropriate authority.

According to him, there is an urgent need for proprietors to also install speed limit devices in all their school buses.

He explained that the speed limit device would help to reduce the wear and tear of the vehicles, and also help to conserve fuel consumption.

”It is a must for these proprietors to install the speed limit device,” he said.

Wobin noted that some of the drivers of these buses do not obey traffic rules, warning that such activities will no longer be tolerated.

Noble Reporters Media reports that one of the concerns raised by the proprietors included the slashing of the cost of the speed limit device.

They also pleaded with the FRSC to ensure it organised a periodic workshop for their drivers, as it would assist them in doing the right thing.

The school proprietors present at the meeting included Tithemi International School, AYES school, Diamond Standard Basic School and Britarch Montessori School, Lugbe, among others.

Yule 2020: FRSC promises ‘traffic free’ Xmas along Lagos-Ibadan expy

Advertisements

Olayinka also attributed the heavy traffic to the ongoing renovation on the highway, adding that the construction workers had reduced to single lane some sections of the road.

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Thursday assured commuters and transporters that it would sustain the current free flow of traffic along the Ogun axis of the Lagos/Ibadan expressway.

The Ogun Sector Commander of the corps, Mr Ahmed Umar, gave the assurance in Abeokuta in an interview with NoRM‘s known Media

Umar, who said there had been substantial and noticeable improvement in the traffic situation along the Ogun corridor of the expressway, pledged that the FRSC would sustain this.
He attributed the development to the recently inaugurated “Operation Zero Road Crashes” across the country by the corps.

“We have really planned ahead to check the usual traffic jam on the major highways including the Lagos/Ibadan expressway.

“The Ogun command of the FRSC has deployed 2,452 personnel across the state to monitor and control gridlocks during the Yuletide with a larger percentage on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway and Sagamu – Benin expressway.

“The personnel, made up of Regular and Special Marshals, have been deployed to traffic-prone areas and construction zones including Ogere, Mowe, Ibafo, Magboro and Kara to ensure accident and hitch-free Yuletide, especially on Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

” Thirty three vehicles, 10 motor bikes, seven ambulances and two towing trucks have also been deployed in the state for the exercise
“The heavy presence of our officials and equipment would be felt on the Ogun axis of the expressway to monitor and control traffic jams so as to ensure sanity of motorists during the festive season,” he said.

He also attributed the development to the renewed collaboration between the agency and the transporters as well as other stakeholders in the state.

“We have met and advised drivers against excessive speeding and to refrain from driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs to avoid unnecessary loss of lives and property.

Advertisements

“We have also advised them and organised various seminars on how to keep their vehicles road worthy and obey all traffic rules and regulations to stay alive during and after the season,” Umar said.

The Spokesperson of the Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Agency (TRACE) in Ogun, Mr Babatunde Akinbiyi, also corroborated that the free flow of traffic on the state’s axis of the expressways in an interview with NoRM‘s known Media in Abeokuta.

Advertisements

He added that over 100 officials of the agency had been deployed in the Ogun axis of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway for the yuletide and New Year period.

“We have four Divisional commands along that stretch, namely: Akute/Ojodu-Abiodun which covers the Berger/Longbridge/Mountain Top University axis; Mowe/Ibafo Divisional Command, which covers the Mountain Top axis- interchange; Sagamu Divisional Command and Ogere Division Command.

“The stretch leads to Ibadan and our operatives are always on ground,” he said.

Mr Dotun Oluyinka , an official of the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN), Kuto park Abeokuta, said that there had been an increase in vehicular movement on the Lagos/Ibadan expressway because of Christmas.

He said that the traffic was usually heavy around Ibafo area because “the designated bus-stop is so small and so transporters stop along the road to drop and pick passengers.’’

” The frequent breakdown of trailers along the road, particularly, Ibafo and Kara areas coupled with narrow road often result in heavy traffic,” he said.

Advertisements

Olayinka said that the rehabilitation work on the highway had also led to expansion of some portions of the road thus easing traffic in such areas.

He, therefore, called on the government to ensure speedy completion of the project for easy flow of traffic on the Lagos/Ibadan expressway.

Read… Abuja: It’s The Devil. Serial Killer Gracious David-west Accept Guilt.

He described the alleged killing as callous, wicked and detestable and demanded the prosecution of the officials involved.

”The alleged killing of Samuel Omafo Odion is callous, wicked and detestable. FRSC men disappointed Nigerians and we demand immediate prosecution of the suspects.

”We call on FRSC authorities to stop their men from flagging down motorists on lonely highways. Such method is an avenue for extortion, intimidation and other criminal activities like this recent killing.

”FRSC officials often expose motorists to danger by stopping them in odd places. Vehicles stopped on lonely stretches may refuse to start when the driver is eventually allowed to go, this is dangerous particularly with the security challenges facing Nigeria,” he said.
Akintola therefore, urged FRSC to educate its staff to ensure good human relations with the citizens in the field. ”There is also the need for FRSC leadership to review its recruitment methods with a view to weeding out criminal elements from inception.” He said.
