  3. […] The Federal Road Safety Corps says achieving a safe and gridlock-free motoring society is the responsibility of every road user and not that of the law enforcement agents alone. FRSC’s Public Education Officer, Mr Bisi Kazeem, said that all hands should be on the deck to reduce accidents and fatalities on the roads. While acknowledging the perennial gridlock at the Apapa Port in Lagos, Kazeem said the corps had established a command at the port with a view to tackling the gridlock in the area. “One must bring to mind that in as much as operatives have been deployed to regulate excesses and ensure orderliness, drivers must also learn to be disciplined and patient. “Drivers must also be tolerant without which every other effort will end in futility,” he said.
