The Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, Enugu State Command, has said that it has succeeded in reducing road accidents in the state between January 1 and November 30, 2023.

The state sector commander, Adeyemi Sokunbi, stated this on Thursday, saying that the corps recorded a reduction in the number of persons involved in crashes to 763 from January to November 2023 compared to the 1,576 recorded in the same period in 2022.

He also pointed out that the number of vehicles involved in road crashes was reduced to 174 in 2023 as against 314 in 2022.

“The number of Road Traffic Crashes (RTC) reduced to 108 in 2023 as against 186 in 2022, and the number of fatalities reduced to 35 in 2023 as against 49 in 2022,” Sokunbi said.

According to him, the total fatalities reduced to 438 between January 1 and November 30, 2023, as against 646 in the same period in 2022.

He added that the sharp reduction in crashes was due to the strong and continuous engagement of transport stakeholders and the general motoring public by the FRSC.

According to him, “We appreciate the FRSC Corps Marshal, Dauda Biu, and the FRSC South-East Zonal Commander, Assistant Corps Marshal, Isaac Ameh, for providing guidance and logistics for the robust stakeholders’ engagement to be possible.”
