The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has called for a stakeholders’ meeting to sensitise motorists about the proper use of vehicle tyres.

The commission is organising the event as part of its response to a recent upsurge in tyre-related accidents across the country, the commission said Wednesday.

The agency said through its head of media relations, Bisi Kazeem, that it would remain committed to pursuing programmes that promote safety.

Mr. Kazeem quoted the FRSC Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, as making the announcement during the commissioning of 300 Hummer buses fitted with speed-limiting devices at the Peace Mass Transport Limited facility in Enugu, the Enugu State capital.

After praising the organisers of the event, Mr. Oyeyemi reportedly said, “In our continuing determination to create public awareness on issues of road safety, especially with the increasing rate of tyre-related crashes occurring in the country, we are convening stakeholders’ meeting in Abuja next month.”

According to Mr. Kazeem, Mr. Oyeyemi said the FRSC hoped that the platform would further enlighten members of the public about tyre-related issues.

“We hope to use the platform to enlighten members of the public on proper use of tyres and the fact that tyres, like drugs, do expire; whether or not they are used,” Mr. Oyeyemi was quoted as saying.
