Traffic official cautions motorists against disobeying traffic rules


Sango-Ota, Ogun.

Mr Adekunle Ajibade, the Ogun West Area Commander of Ogun Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), on Wednesday warned motorists against disobeying traffic rules and regulations.

Ajibade gave the warning while speaking in Ota, saying this will help stem the occurrence of automobile accidents during the “Ember” months.

The TRACE official spoke against the backdrop of an accident in which two trucks collided at Arobieye, along the Ota-Idiroko road.

Two trucks had a head-on collision and plunged into the Iju river, due to a vehicle which broke down on Wednesday along the road.

However, eight people were involved in the accident in which one person was killed and two others sustained injuries.

“The incident could have been averted if the vehicle that broke down had used a C-Caution sign and the other two vehicles had adhered to traffic rules and regulations.

“In addition, we will advise drivers to ensure that their vehicles are in good shape before putting them on the road.

“They should desist from speeding and use the C-Caution sign whereever  their vehicles develop any fault, so as to prevent incoming vehicles from ramming into them,” Ajibade said.

He urged them to exercise patience and refrain from dangerous driving during the ember months to reduce mishaps on the highways.
