Road crashes always fatal if seatbelts are not used –FRSC

 

 

The Itori Unit Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Ogun has emphasised the need for motorists and their passengers to always use their seatbelts in order to reduce fatality in the event of an accident.

The Itori Unit Command of FRSC, Mr Shamaki Yerima, disclosed this on Tuesday in Ota in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria.

Yerima stressed the need for motorists and their passengers to always use their seatbelts because their lives mattered as they also contribute to the national economy.

He noted that the level of fatality was always lower in road crashes when seatbelts are used than the crashes in which the seatbelts are not used.

“There is high tendency that people would be thrown out of the vehicle when accident happened due to the pressure, thus resulting in fatality,” he said.

Yerima appealed to motorists to always obey traffic rules and regulations so as to stem road crashes.

He enjoined drivers to always tell the passengers, sitting in the front, to use their seatbelts to avoid being arrested by the FRSC.
