The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Ogun has urged passengers to always caution reckless drivers to avoid accidents and fatalities.
Ahmed Umar, the Ogun Sector Commander, gave the advice on the back of a fatal accident on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway which claimed 11 lives and left three injured.
The accident involved a commercial bus with no number, a Toyota Rav 4 with registration number LND 13 GS and a Toyota Camry marked GGE 369 GJ.
While commiserating with the families of the accident victims, Mr Umar said that the incident could have been averted if the commercial bus driver obeyed simple traffic regulations of not overtaking wrongly, which resulted in the death of innocent people.
The sector commander added that the bus was overspeeding and rammed into a stationary car that had a fault.
The fatal accident could have been prevented if passengers cautioned the driver against wrongful overtaking.
I enjoin passengers to always caution reckless drivers to avoid unnecessary loss of lives and property.
Mr Umar warned drivers against excessive speeding and wrongful overtaking to prevent mishaps on the highway.
The sector commander advised families of the accident victims to go to the nearest FRSC office along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to get further details of the accident.
