The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Adamawa State says no fewer than 40 people died in road accidents between September and December 9, 2020.

FRSC also disclosed that 203 other people sustained various degrees of injury.

The FRSC Adamawa Sector Commander, Mr Ocheja Ameh, told NAN in Yola on Friday, that between September and December 9th, 82 road traffic accidents were recorded

Ameh said that 138 vehicles with 407 people were involved in the accidents, out of which, 364 persons were taken to the nearest hospitals by FRSC officials.

He noted that the accidents were caused by wrong overtaking, tyre punctures, loss of control on the part of drivers and speed violations.

Ameh called on motorists to drive with care, always abide by road traffic regulations and respect security personnel on highways.

The Sector Commander also warned against the use of cellphones while driving to avoid road accidents, especially now that the volume of traffic had increased because of yuletide.

He said, “We’re getting to the peak period, you should drive with care, check the gauge of your tyres, make sure it’s not expired and stop over-loading because we’re going to focus on them.”

Ameh said the deployment of FRSC personnel across the 21 local government areas of the state contributed to the success of sensitisation efforts.
