In its efforts to forestall and where possible reduce the rate of road mishaps  especially as activities peak towards Christmas and the new year, the Federal Road  Safety Corps has taken its campaign to Obalende, barely a week after a similar  campaign was held at CMS bus stop.

The Unit Commander of FRSC, Lagos Island, Mr. Segun Ogungbemide, in collaboration  with Arrive Alive AARI, NURTW,  RTEAN and city bus operators, were recently at  Obalende bus stop to preach the message of restraint, telling drivers and  transporters that it is possible to make the yuletide accident-free if they could  abide by the rules and regulations that cause accidents on the road.

The event was held under the flyover at Obalende, Ikoyi, Lagos, southwest Nigeria.
