The Corps Marshal of FRSC Dr Boboye Oyeyemi who gave the directive in Abuja during the end of the year strategic session with commanding officers said provision of adequate warning signs would provide necessary information as pre-caution for road users.
The FRSC Corps Marshal while acknowledging the huge resources provided by the federal government for effective traffic management stressed that on no account should the commanding officers allow any gridlock in their respective Commands.
He urged them to provide supervision for the Marshals deployed for the end of the year patrol while awareness, enlightenment and advocacy campaign must be intensified.
The FRSC Boss maintained that 25 help areas had been established in all the 34 identified corridors to attend to emergency while the Marshals would embark on random check of intake of alcoholic beverages by motorists.
Dr Oyeyemi assured that any commercial driver that failed to instal speed limit device would be sanctioned and that body cameras would be deployed to monitor the activities and check assaults on Marshals.
He appealed to motorists to avoid over speeding, overloading, route violation, night journey and give maximum cooperation for zero accident.
