ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS IN NIGERIA

 

Going down the line of history, no doubts that many have died due to one accidents or the other while travelling on the roads.  Some of these fatal accidents have generally included head on coalition by vehicles with other road users, fire from tankers, trailers and other heavy duty vehicles falling off on other vehicles, and so on.

Our findings, as also confirmed by other sources revealed that many roads in Nigeria need immediate attention to repair and make them more user friendly. According to reports from the 6:00Am News by Nigeria Info FM on August 10th, 2018, the recent accident that killed about 16 people, including a NAVA Officer along East West road in Port Harcourt this August 9th was as a result of bad road.

Other causes we have identified in various accidents include recklessness from drivers, violating road safety rules and regulations, poor vehicle conditions, lack of proper journey management, fatigues in drivers, speed violation and incompetent drivers, just to mention a few.

We recommend that the Federal Road Safety should ensure more strict implementation of their rules, especially when it comes to road worthiness of vehicles and certification of drivers. They emergency response teams should also improve their facilities for effective and timely response at the critical times. Very importantly, safety is everybody’s business. The drivers and passengers should all be safety conscious while embarking on any journey.
