According to him, 98 percent of crashes are avoidable because they happen as a result of human error. He reiterated that driving against traffic is not just an offence against traffic rules but also a suicidal act and a display of inhumanity from man to man.
The FRSC Lagos Sector Commander, however, emphasized the commitment of FRSC to creating a safer motoring environment and service delivery even more during this festive season.
