According to the Annual Road Traffic Crashes (RTC) report for 2021 from the office of the Sector Commander Federal Road Safety Corps Bauchi State Command Yusuf Abdullahi, the operation of FRSC took place across the 4000km of the road network connecting the state.

According to the report made available to our Correspondent, there were 307 serious accidents injuring 2157 among the total number of 3586 people involved in the various accidents. 

The FRSC noted that the common causes of the accidents are overspeeding, reckless driving and wrong overtaking, adding that most of the accidents occurred in the evening and nighttime. 

The report signed by the Sector Commander, Yusuf Abdullahi contained that 80% of the vehicles involved in the accidents are commercial buses and cars passing through the state.

It stressed that Speed and wrong overtaking is the major cause of the RTC  while speeding remained the number one source of worry for Corps personnel in road safety management.

He assured that The Corps would continue to do its best to ensure that RTC resulting from speeding is reduced to the barest minimum in 2022 just as it would continue to monitor road usages to guard against dangerous driving, among other causes of RTC.

The Sector Commander advised the public to toll-free numbers 122, during emergencies in order to get quick and prompt responses from the FRSC personnel.
