The FRSC asked motorists to cooperate with the commission to ensure that Nigerian roads are free of crashes
The Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC, said 11 people were killed and 112 injured in 42 road crashes between December 19, 2013 and January 13, 2014 in Plateau.
The FRSC Sector Commander, Sunday Maku, who gave the figures when he briefed journalists on its activities in Jos on Wednesday, said 90 people were rescued from vehicle accidents.
Mr. Maku said that during the period, 42 crashes involving 213 casualties were recorded; adding that 511 traffic offenders were arrested.
He said there was a slight drop in the number of accidents recorded in the 2013 festive season as against what was recorded in 2012.
“This is an indication that we are making progress in our bid to reduce accidents on our roads,’’ he said.
Mr. Maku said the traffic offences included overloading, over-speeding, bad tyres, dangerous overtaking as well as underage persons on the wheel.
He called on motorists to cooperate with the commission to ensure that Nigerian roads were free of crashes.
