The FRSC spokesman, Assistant Corps Marshal (ACM) Bisi Kazeem, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Abuja.

He also advised that drivers should always note the preliminaries (Pre-vehicle Use Checks) and ensure their vehicles are in good working condition.

“Motorists are advised to ensure that before embarking on a journey during the rainy season, they should ascertain that the windows and windshields are clean.

“This is to be observed on the outside and the inside, and routinely check the headlights, brake lights, turn signals and tail lights, ” he said.

According to him, the wind shield wiper and blades should also be checked for proper functioning. The lights should be on during the day and at night, whenever rain starts dropping.

“Motorists are also advised to reduce their speed during this time and apply the “common sense speed limit”.

“This is particularly because the road surface is often slippery, drivers are also admonished to ensure that their tyres have adequate grip on the road.
