The Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, has deployed regular and special marshals, as well as patrol vehicles and ambulances, for a smooth Eid-el-Fitr celebration.

The FRSC Corps Marshal, Dauda Ali-Biu made this disclosure at the official inauguration of the 2024 Sallah Mega Motor Park Rally on Saturday in Abuja

Ali-Biu also said that Tow trucks and bikes were also deployed, adding that the deployment was across the 52 critical corridors in the country.

Saga Gist reports that the theme for the year 2024 rally is “Overloading is a Time Bomb: Stop the Deaths, Do not Overload with Persons, Animals or Goods”.

Ali-Biu represented by the Deputy Corps Marshal (DCM) in charge of operations, Shehu Zaki said that the theme was apt and could not have come at a better time.

He said that deployments were also made to other roads across the length and breadth of the country.

According to him, the corps also deployed operational equipment in the categories of Radar Guns, Breathalysers to put a check on drunk driving and speeding.

“I also directed that all Zebras must be active 24/7 and be responsive to calls within the minimum FRSC response time to crashes that might be reported.

“All Commanding Officers have equally been directed to step up patrol operations and ensure strict enforcement of critical offences like overloading, driving rickety vehicles, excessive smoke emission among others.

“The year 2024 may present yet another challenge and that is why we have come out to tackle it head on.

“This is with commitment and determination, as evidenced by the comprehensive measure we are putting in place to address the dreadful experiences we have.

“For instance, for this year’s exercise, I have already directed the deployment of FRSC Regular and Special Marshals, Patrol Vehicles, Ambulances, Tow Truck and Bikes across the 52 critical corridor and other roads across the length and breadth of the country,” he said
