The Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Commission, Boboye Oyeyemi, on Sunday listed emergency phone numbers for travellers.
He made this disclosure in his Sallah message signed by FRSC’s spokesperson, Bisi Kazeem.
Boboye Oyeyemi said: “Eid-El Kabir celebration teaches us how to show obedience to God in all that we do as human beings.
“As the Muslim Ummah observe the feast, let everyone celebrate with the spirit of obedience to God and recognise the sanctity of human lives by obeying all traffic rules and regulations and avoiding acts capable of undermining safety of other road users.
“People should, therefore, avoid overloading, speed limit violation, dangerous driving and phoning/texting while driving and also avoid the use of worn-out/expired tyres.
“As a build up towards October 1 commencement of nationwide enforcement, he also urged commercial vehicles operators to install speed limiting device, because it is only the living that can celebrate”.
Mr. Oyeyemi implored Nigerians to assist traffic officers and security personnel deployed to manage the traffic by conducting themselves in safe and orderly manner.
He said FRSC patrol and rescue teams have been put on alert to assist road travellers, while the help areas/roadside clinics across the country would remain open to attend to emergencies.
Mr. Oyeyemi said members of the public should notify FRSC of any urgent situation through its emergency line: 0700-CALL-FRSC (0700-22553772) or Toll-free line: 122 for immediate response.
