The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Edo state has confirmed that no fewer than 85 deaths were recorded in 117 road traffic accidents in the state in the past six months.
The FRSC Sector Commander in the state, Mr Anthony Oko, who made this disclosure to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Benin, said the accidents occurred from January to June.
Oko stated that from January to June this year, 41 of the crashes recorded were fatal, with 541 persons injured, as against 20 fatal accidents and 366 persons injured the same period in 2017.
The commander said that January holds the highest record of crashes during the period under review, while in 2017 January, February and April accounted for the highest occurrences due to mass movement.
He added that Speed Violation (SPV) topped the major causes of mishaps in the state, followed by Brake Failure (BFL) and Mechanical Deficiency (MDV).
However, he advised motorists to drive within approved speed limit and also ensure that their vehicles are road-worthy.
‘’Motorists should detest from dangerous overtaking that could lead to loss of control, especially during heavy down pour when the roads are wet and slippery and cannot hold tyres of vehicles,” Oko said.
