FRSC, Nigerian Breweries Move To Reduce Road Crashes



THE Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and Nigerian Breweries Plc (NB) have restated strong commitment to reduce road crashes in Nigeria, particularly those related to drunkenness.

Announcing commencement of the eighth yearly ‘Don’t Drink and Drive’ campaign, an initiative sponsored by Nigeria Breweries in partnership with FRSC yesterday in Lagos, the organisations stated that there was need for intensified effort on responsible consumption of alcohol for a safer society.

Speaking at the event, Corps Marshal and Chief Executive FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi said that “alcohol-related road traffic crashes remain a major global issue which has taken the front burner over the years”, adding that cases of excessive consumption of alcohol among drivers accounted for about 58 per cent of road crashes recorded in 2014 across the country.
