The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has signed on to the United Nations (UN) Second Decade of Action for Road Safety to address the increasing rate of road crashes across the country.
The Corps Marshal, FRSC, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, gave the hint at a one-day workshop organised for Sector Heads of Drivers Licence Centres on Tuesday in Abuja.
Oyeyemi said that the UN second decade of action for road safety (2021-2030) was a continuation of the first decade of action for road safety (2010-2020).
He however said that there was an increase in road traffic crashes globally at the end of the first decade of action.
According to him, it was observed that at the beginning of 2010, the first decade of action for the road safety, the fatality rate of road traffic crashes was 1.2 million deaths globally.
