The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has urged motorists to ensure that their vehicles are in good condition before putting them on the highway during this rainy season.
It said that motorists must ensure functional wipers, brake system, headlamps, rear lights, traffic indicators, side glasses, and clear windscreen while driving on the expressway during the rains.
Mr Sikiru Alonge, the FRSC Unit Commander in Ore, Ondo State, gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Ore.
He said that driving under the rain was like driving under emergency, hence motorists must ensure that all the necessary functional vehicle parts were good order.
He also advised motorists to be cautious and maintain normal speed limit during the rains because of the slippery roads to avert crashes.
“We are in the rainy season; motorists must ensure they have functional wipers, brakes, rear lights, trafficators, headlamps and a very clear windscreen for clearer vision,” Alonge said.
The FRSC boss urged motorists to ensure strict compliance to all traffic rules and regulations saying that erring motorists and other road users would face the law if arrested. (NAN)
