Walk The Talk: Ban Daytime Movement Of Fuel Tankers And Trailers In Nigeria!

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke

Did you know that in less than one month, over 100 people have died as a result of accidents involving fuel tankers and trailers? Just yesterday another accident involving a trailer claimed 5 more lives in Anambra State. Innocent men, women and children have been burnt to ashes and crushed to death because fuel tanker and trailer drivers have refused to pay heed to traffic regulations. The victims of those accidents never bargained for it, it could happen to anyone tomorrow.

Its not enough to say R.I.P, will you channel your anger and frustrations to making a difference or will you continue to act indifferent? If you are willing, then please join the campaign to ban daytime movement of fuel tankers and trailers, on the following pages, also feel free to drop comments and suggestions.

I know the Lagos state government has banned the tanker-driving during daytime.They are only allowed to move at night.
Not just tanker-drivers. all motorist should be banned i guess.
What we need is a holistic approach to this. FRSC is not functioning properly. They should have a database of cars in the country.The numbers of vehicles,those that are road-worthy and that are not. The latter should be impounded and de-registered.
Everything still borders down to the government

But the roads are bad.
-----------------------
Last Bullet: I think the FG & State Govts have to continue in mega road construction. When the road is wide enough, there ll be enough space & reduced accidents caused by trailers,tankers or lorries.
#Just my opinion.

What has voting for PDP got to do with tankers and trailers killing people on our roads?
Sometimes I wonder if people like u has anything that looks like a brain in ur skull.

@topic, until the rail system becomes fully operational, I don't think we can afford to ban heavy duty vehicles on our highways.
Also govt at various levels must ensure that it provides pedestrian bridges in populated areas, we can also divert traffic from cities and towns by constructing bypasses.

The federal government must not delay in putting to an end the carnage caused on our roads by truck and tanker drivers. The influx of technically questionable Chinese trucks have equally worsened the accident situations on Nigerian Highways. Let them ply the roads from 7pm to 6am only.

Majority of these tankers and trailers are owned by political thieves and influential cronies heavily connected to the corridors of power in this nation...

last year this method was tried in Lagos, especially at the port access roads, only for them to resume in less than a week.

The real problem is effective monitoring and i am not sure with the high level of corruption we can see a complete ban of these moving road killers in daytime.

Oda countries transport dangerous and flamable liquid substance thru d rails and even if u c dia tankers or trailers, u wud know that they are even more road worthy than som personal clean vehicles ownd in our country. How can a trailer run for over 40 or 50 yrs and they allow them 2 kip on killin.
Re: Banning Of Daytime Movement Of Fuel Tankers And Trailers In Nigeria Campaign! by kross01(m): 1:44pm On Apr 28, 2013
good move but wrong timing if you ask me. On which roads will the tankers & trucks drive on at nights? The death traps with all sorts of holes? Or driving at night on roads that robbers can afford to place blockages & rob comfortably before leaving? If our trains & waterways are fully functional(and as well secured) change of transport mode would have been a better solution. my humble opinion

[b]I had a deep thought about it that maybe banning of trailers , heavy trucks and Fuel tankers movement during the day will reduce accident rate but I arrive at the conclusion that it won't work! and it is even better if they are moving by the day than night .

First , Imagine a fuel tanker having a break failure at night and then entering into the street filled with houses and it caught fire , The number of causalities including houses and properties that will get lost will be greater than that of the day .

Most people will already be aslept ,before they call for fire service and before the people living in the burning houses get any attention they would have died from fumes from the fire and also with the state this country fire service is , That they don't even work properly during the day probability that they will work at night is zero if we won't lye to ourselves . I mean sh1t happens but nobody pray for it.

Second , I have been driving around now with my own vehicle during the day and club , bars at night I can boldly tell you that those heavy trucks , tankers and others you see driving slowly during the day doesn't do that at night in fact most teenagers would have come to the conclusion that those heavy trucks and tankers can't speed at all because the way they move during the day. It's a big lye ,

Those tankers you see are responsible for the death of people you see by the road side in the morning or either inside the gutter because the rate at which they speed during the night and even with only single head lamp or none at all with their big horn . it's just too dangerous for this big trucks to be moving at night,

In addition their won't be road safety officers at night to challenge them if they have no headlamps and if they are against any traffic law , they can even collide with each other and one of them speed off .

Bad roads is also another great problem their are some roads you will drive through during the day and you will think you have known the road better to drive fast through it at night without knowing that the few hours between the time you passed through that road and the time you are returning from the place you went , Their could have been some new pot holes created by either accidents or heavy rain and if any tanker driver had that same thought and speed through a pot hole it would be an accident.

Another are the tanker drivers , the use of drugs and alcohol among them and then driving around a faulty truck without brakes saying I will manage it is another big problem.

Just my own opinion wink [/b]

They've already been banned to move at night.
Like the FG, you have no clue of what you have to do. You didn't do any research, you just opened a facebook page and twitter profile because you think you can without considering the conditions of the oppressed.

1. Repair the federal roads.
2. Motor Licensing officers give "road worthiness" to people without seeing the cars in question.
3. Drivers should tend to their cars (especially brakes) every morning.
4. FRSC is a failed system. The blood of most accident victims are on their head.

Ban? That's the wrong solution to a wrong problem! Transportation of petroleum products are core aspect of our economy and a ban ll not come easy. Its a interlocking chain meaning if the ban holds then prices may go up and scarcity begins. I think its time we start using experts to solve problem. I have a friend who design a grid-like road network system which when implemented ll free up our highways, divert trucks from residentials and increase efficiency and money! This guy is a graduate of transport management technology and there are many like him!
We Nigerians must wake up and entrench technocratic system of governance!
