Christians Tasked On Road Safety


Osita Chidoka, Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has urged Christians  to imbibe Christian ethics of tolerance and patience while driving so as to prevent  road traffic crashes.

Chidoka said this yesterday during a church service at Christ Redemption Church,  Enugu, to mark the 2010 World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.

“We should recognise the impact of road traffic crashes and support those who are  affected by doing more to prevent these tragedies across the roads.

“Adopting the spirit of forgiveness for those that cause road crash for our  relations will go a long way in ensuring that we do not seek to revenge for such  deaths, disabilities or incapacitation our loved ones sustained during accidents,”  he said.

The Corps Marshal called on leaders of churches to put Zebra crossing and other road  signs on entrances of their churches to warn motorists and make the church safe for  road users, especially children.

He said the corps had reduced road accidents by about 35 per cent, while the number  of those injured also reduced by the same margin.

Chidoka regretted that no fewer than 60 to 70 people lose their lives weekly on the  roads and advised that since nobody was immune to road crash, all hands must be on  deck to check carnage on the roads.
