Road crashes claim 31 lives in Adamawa


The Adamawa State Command of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) says 31 lives were lost to road accidents from January to July this year.

The command also confirmed that 274 persons sustained different degrees of injuries in the road crashes within the period under review.

Mr Yelwa Dio, FRSC’s Sector Commander in the State, disclosed this in an interview with NAN in Yola on Saturday.

According to Dio, during the period the command recorded 126 road crashes involving 548 people.

He attributed major causes of the accidents to excessive speeding, overloading of persons and goods, wrongful overtaking and use of mobile phones while driving.

The sector commander therefore advised drivers and other road users to always abide by traffic rules and regulations to avoid mishaps.

“The drivers should understand that passengers have the right to reach their destination safely.

“Passengers also should be able to talk to the drivers on the need to obey traffic rules and regulations at all times,” he said.
