The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has disclosed that besides arresting road traffic offenders and enforcing road traffic laws, the Command has other functions put in place to reduce carnage on the road.frsc edited pix 1 Speaking at the certificate presentation ceremony at the Federal University Oye-Ekiti, Road Safety   Commander, Ido unit, Mr. A. O. Fasakin, said some measures have been put in place to ensure safe motoring on our highways.

One of such measures is the safety standardization scheme which entails the Command’s inspection of vehicle fleets of government MPDs and non-governmental institutions such as NURTW garage and the drivers.

In pursuance of this new policy thrust, the Command visited over twenty (20) institutions and government agencies to assess the health of the vehicles in their fleet. Reports generated from the exercise were consequently forwarded to headquarters office of FRSC at Abuja for analysis and scoring. At the end of their last exercise, only three out of the twenty organizations visited were certified by the Corps; Federal Medical Centre Ido, Ido-Osi Local Government and of course, Federal University Oye-Ekiti.

Receiving the certificate of Certification in his office, the Vice Chancellor, Federal University Oye-Ekiti, Professor Isaac. U. Asuzu, appreciated the hard work of FRSC both in traffic control and even at road crash scenes. He was full of praise for the efforts of the Command which have cumulated in reduced accidents on the roads especially during festivities. According to him, “if you don't control traffic, the carnage on our roads would be very grievous.” He therefore thanked the Command for their efforts at bringing sanity on the highways.

The vice chancellor also acceded to the request of the Command to conduct free training for the university drivers and even other staff and advised them to come up with a formal request letter. Earlier, the FRSC had disclosed that enforcement of the proposed Speed Limit Device on all commercial vehicles would take off September 1, 2015 starting with organizations and NURTW.

The Registrar, D. A. Adeyemo, hailed the proposed take-off of the Speed Limit Device on vehicles and the proposed training of drivers and other staff of the university. Other principal officers present were the Bursar, Barrister Bashir O. Badmus and University Librarian, Dr. Gboyega Adio. Also present were the following Deans: Professor Olusegun Oladimeji, Agriculture; Professor Ojo Bakare, Humanities & Social Sciences; Professor Sylvia Uzochukwu represented by Dr. (Mrs) M.A. Oyarekhua,

Sciences and Ag. Director PPU, Engr. F. Adebayo.
