The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) says its operations against trailers loaded with passengers and goods will continue across the country until the situation is under control.

The Corps Marshal, Dauda Ali-Biu, made this known during a Sallah mega rally at Zuba Central Motor Park on Saturday in Abuja.

“We have made significant arrests since the beginning of the Joint Inter-Agency Task Force (JTF) operations. We will not relent until road traffic crashes are reduced to the barest minimum,” he said.

The FRSC boss, represented by Deputy Corps Marshal in charge of Operations, Shehu Zaki, appealed to transport union leaders to support the FRSC in bringing sanity to highways.

He said that the corps was working with the Nigeria Bar Association and state judiciaries to prosecute offenders on the spot.

Earlier, Mr Muta’a Chorrie, the FCT Sector Commander, urged passengers to avoid boarding overloaded vehicles and report any act of indiscipline by drivers.

Chorrie said that the mega rally was to educate drivers and passengers on the dangers of overloading, speeding, lane indiscipline, use of phones while driving and drunk driving, among others.
