Federal Road Safety Corps has cautioned motorists against insisting on their right of way because such moves lead to accidents on major roads in the country.
The FRSC Zonal Commander in-charge of Zone 9, Owoimaha Udoma gave the warning while speaking toNews Agency of Nigeria in Enugu on Sunday.
Udoma spoke after monitoring some major road corridors within Enugu, Abia and Ebonyi States as part of his supervision on the ongoing Operation Safe Journey for the Eid-el-Kabir celebration nationwide.
Udoma, who is in-charge of Abia, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo States, said that the motoring public and every other road user should ply the roads with restraint and accommodation of others.
He said the best approach to avoid accident and not build up traffic is to be patient with the erring driver. He also said the little patience and accommodation we display on roads usually help our journeys to be smooth and hitch-free.
The zonal commander urged motorists to apply defensive driving mechanism and start their journeys on time to avoid the temptation of driving on high speed to make up for lost time.
