The Federal Road Emergency Management Agency has cautioned motorists against overloading, speeding and poor maintenance of vehicles during the yuletide.

Director-General of FERMA, Alhaji Abbas Idriss, in a statement on Monday in Abuja, attributed the high rate of accidents during the ember months to reckless driving and poor maintenance of vehicles, the News Agency of Nigeria states.

Idriss also appealed to motorists, particularly commercial drivers, to observe all road protocols during the yuletide.

He disclosed that the agency had been meeting with the National Union of Road Transport Workers on the need to practise safe driving culture.

The director-general also noted that the Federal Government was doing its best to rehabilitate roads across the country, adding that it was safer to drive slowly and get to one’s destination alive.

“We have an emergency response plan, a roadmap, which cuts across every secretariat, department, agencies as well as ministries, departments and agencies. We relate with all structures in the system. We have paramedics attached to our ambulances, equipped with oxygen,” he said.

On provision of emergency exits, particularly in high rise buildings, the FERMA boss lamented that most buildings in the FCT were deficient.

He said that an inspection carried out by the agency uncovered a lot of infractions, adding that it was not too late to correct them.
