During the time period under consideration, he added, 1,025 persons and 369 vehicles were engaged in 202 road crashes, the majority of which were caused by speeding and improper overtaking by drivers.

He asked drivers to follow all traffic laws and avoid traveling at night to limit the number of accidents, especially during the winter months.

“We’ve entered the ember months, which are the busiest since so many people will be traveling.”

“As a result, drivers should not rush to pick up passengers in order to make a lot of money.

“You must always drive carefully and within the speed limit.

“In fact, you should put a speed limit device in your vehicles to help you control your vehicle’s speed,” he recommended.

Boyi also advised drivers to avoid overloading their vehicles in order to prevent placing too much pressure on their tires, which could result in tire blowouts and crashes.
