The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) in Ogun says any motorist caught driving against traffic will forfeit the vehicle till after the Yuletide.
Mr Clement Oladele, the Ogun Sector Commander of FRSC, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday that such preventive measure was necessary to ensure effective traffic management.
He also said there was the need to put measures in place to protect lives and property following the increase in human and vehicular movement during the festive period.
”Our goal this year is to attain zero death as we projected that over 300,000 passengers would be travelling to various destinations during the festive period.
” We will be delighted seeing people travelling for the Christmas and New Year celebration to arrive safely at their various destinations, “he said.
Oladele, however, advised motorists to cooperate with FRSC personnel and adhere strictly to all the rules and regulations to reduce crashes.
He said the FRSC had been mobilised for 24 hours patrol to check excesses of drivers during the period.
Oladele also warned motorists against driving after drinking alcohol.
