Injuries and avoidable accidents that occur on highways are not always due to bad roads as claimed by road users, the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has said.

According to him, road accidents are largely due to speeding and the recklessness of drivers, as no driver speeds on a bad road.
