The Federal Road Safety Corps, Ogun State command has said that vehicles impounded for contravening traffic rules at construction sites would not be released until January next year.

The Ogun Sector Commander of FRSC, Mr Clement Oladele, made this disclosure at the Ember Months campaign organised in collaboration with the Shell Nigeria.

 

According to NAN, that the campaign was entitled: Safe Driving, Safe Arrival.

Oladele noted that road clashes were on the increase this year.

“This development is alarming because the 214 lives lost so far this year was more than that of 2017 figure which was 210,” he said.

 

According to the commander, one out of every two clashes that occurred in the state this year, one happens at a construction site. He further attributed these clashes to over-speeding.

 

The sector commander implored motorists to be cautious at construction sites as vehicles arrested for speeding and overtaking would be impounded.

 

“Motorists should not speed above 50 kilometres per hour at construction sites to avoid unnecessary loss of lives.“ Oladele said.

 

He further cautioned motorists to desist from wrongful overtaking on Lagos/Abeokuta Expressway due to several diversions on the roads.
