Uga said that the FRSC was able to reduce accidents to the barest minimum through the special patrol, which began on March 29 and ended April 2.

“The massive deployment of our personnel, both Regular and Special Marshals, during the Easter period helped to reduce cases of accidents.

“Our personnel were able to check the excesses of drivers who were fond of flouting traffic rules and regulations, which sometimes resulted in crashes,” he said.
