The Kaduna State Sector Commander, Mr Mike Olagunji disclosed this during the flagging off of “Operation Total Forces on Road Crashes” in Kaduna.

The operation, according to him, which would be anchored in collaboration with the state NDLEA, would test motorists to ensure they were free from any harmful substance, before embarking on their journey.

He said they have deployed 200 marshals and 75 officers for 22-hour routine patrols to monitor speed and driving compliance to traffic rules by motorist.

“During the operation, we will make sure all offenders are documented and enlightened on the dangers of over speeding”, he said.

Olagunji said the patrol would cover Kaduna-Abuja, adding that the road marshals would be stationed at Kakau toll gate, Alheri camp and Katari.

He said similar patrols would be conducted on Kaduna- Kachia- Kafanchan road.

“We want to reduce car crashes to the barest minimum this December, especially night journey which is a challenge on our roads and we hope all drivers will cooperate with us”, he said.

The corps commander advised road users to avoid over speeding, over loading, use of mobile phones while driving and wrong over taking, as they are major causes of road accidents.

He reminded motorists that only the living celebrates, and urged drivers to reduce their speed so as to save peoples’ lives.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the 52-day operation will run from Nov. 25 to Jan. 15, 2014. (NAN)
