Chairman of the Technical Committee on Road Safety in Osun State, Professor Joseph Fawole, has observed that activities of the committee set up by Governor Rauf Aregbesola coupled with those of other stakeholders have gone a long way in reducing road accidents in the state.
Speaking while presenting the committee’s quarterly report on fatality on road, Fawole said recent reports from the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) indicated that death ratio in Osun has reduced to the bearest minimum.
Fawole, who spoke in IJebu-Jesa in the Oriade Local Government area of the state on ‘Ember Month Road Safety Campaign’, said the activities of the committee and others have saved lots of lives.
While listing use of phone on wheels, over speeding and use of Tokunbo tyres as some of the causes of road accidents, Fawole advised passengers to always take time to check the tyres of any vehicle they intend to board and ensure that they were not worn-out.
He further advised them not to hesitate to caution any driver when over speeding.
