The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) says it recorded over 40 per cent reduction in road traffic crashes and fatalities in its just-concluded Special Easter Operation in Enugu State.

The Sector Commander, FRSC Enugu State Command, Mr Joseph Toby, told newsmen in Enugu on Friday that the Command had a “very successful and hitch-free Easter operation”.

NAN recalls that the Command deployed 757 personnel for its Special Easter Operation and 17 vehicles, which includes: 12 patrol vehicles, three motorcycles, one tow truck and one well-equipped ambulance for the operation.

The operation code-named: “Easter Special Patrol Operation” lasted for seven days commencing from April 13 to April 20.

Toby said that the Command’s personnel worked hard to achieve the 40 per cent reduction of road traffic crashes and fatalities in 2022 compared to the same period (or Easter operation) in 2021.

“More crash victims were rescued without fatalities as a result of prompt emergency rescue services by FRSC personnel especially our well-equipped ambulance and first aid unit.

“Lots of obstructions were promptly cleared as soon as they occurred by our gallant personnel.

“Traffic flash points across the state were adequately manned by FRSC personnel, ensuring free and smooth flow of traffic on major road corridors throughout the one week operation,” he said.

He lauded regular and special marshals as well as officers of the Command for their commitment, which led to prompt response to emergencies as well as the various reductions in crashes and fatalities in the state.

“I appreciate the close synergy with the Nigeria Police, Nigerian Army, Nigeria Air Force, NSCDC, DSS, state ministry of transport and transport unions in the state that made the operation seamless and a huge success,” the commander said.
