The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), says no fewer than 10, 522 Road Traffic Crashes (RTCs) were recorded nationwide in 2020 involving 17,614 vehicles.

The Corps Public Education Officer (CPEO) Assistant Corps Marshal (ACM) Bisi Kazeem, disclosed this in an interview with the Newsmen on Thursday in Abuja.

Kazeem said 4, 794 persons were recorded dead and 28,449 persons got various degrees of injury within the period under review, while 29,808 had minor injuries and survived.

He said there was a decrease in the total number of people killed by road traffic crashes in 2020 when compared to 2019.

He added that In 2019, the Corps recorded 4, 878 deaths as against 4, 794 deaths in 2020 representing a decrease of 84 which was 1.75 per cent decrease.

According to him, the Corps recorded a total of 10,522 road traffic crashes involving 17,614 vehicles in the year 2020, as against 9, 957 involving 16,806 vehicles recorded in the previous year 2019.

“The total number of crashes increased in the year 2020 with a total of 565 crashes, representing 5.37 per cent increase.

“In 2020 alone, out of 63,581 people involved in RTC, a total of 4, 794 were killed, as against 4, 878 in 2019 representing 1.75 per cent decrease.

“28,449 got injured in 2020 against 32,344 in 2019 representing a decrease of 3, 895 or 13.69 per cent.

“While a total of 29,808 survived the crashes with injuries in 2020 against 32,499 in 2019 representing 6745 or 10.67 per cent decrease,” he said.

Kazeem said the major causes of these crashes as observed by the Corps was Speed-related Violations (SPV), which contributed above 62 per cent of the total crashes.

He added that dangerous driving, driving under the influence of alcohol, overloading, break failure, tyre burst, wrongful overtaking and route violation were also probable major causes of crashes.

“Bad road, road construction violation, dangerous overtaking, sleeping on steering, poor weather, use of phone while driving, sign light violation, fatigue among others caused the crashes, ” he added.

Kazeem said the Corps believed that a crash-free society was still possible only if all road users, including pedestrians ensured that all road traffic regulations were complied with accordingly.

He, however, warned that those who violated road traffic laws indiscriminately would definitely be penalised as the operatives were more than ever prepared and deployed to enforce compliance.

Wrongful overtaking has claimed more lives esp when a reckless driver chooses to practice the latest 'need for speed' game on our roads....the result is always fatal!
If FRSC wants to ensure a drastic reduction of casualties this year,they must start from transport companies by giving out stiffer penalties to offenders!

Secondly, the institution needs to be decentralized...there are more fatal occurrences at state level than federal!

Well road crashes happens everywhere in the world but sometimes, it's due to reckless driving. People should always try to drive carefully.

Reckless driving ain't brilliant......

More crashes but less deaths and injuries.

Could be because of improved car safety features.

We still drive very recklessly in Nigeria and that needs to stop immediately. Driving school standardisation would stop this.

When FRSC will present their 2020/2021 record, may we, our family members and all loved ones not appear on their data base.

Our going out and coming in shall be a blessing.... Amen.

We can't do anything unless our vehicle operations are decentralized.

Check my signature on that

That's too much, despite d lockdown for months.
It won't cost our leaders anything to fix all our roads but their greed and corruption won't allow them do it

Most of these accidents can be prevented if people will use their heads when driving. One idiot almost drove into me last year while driving against the traffic on asaba-Agbor expressway. Painful part of it is that the man showed no remorse that he almost crushed five people to death in a car with his hilux loaded with building materials telling me that it is normal to drive against the traffic on this highway.
Since I moved to Asaba, it looks like it is here the worst form of drivers exist. You see people drive flagrantly against traffic on one lane. Many a times you negotiate bends and find someone right on your lane when driving within town. It is so sickening. I guess many just get into vehicles and drive around without knowing there are basic rules that guide how you drive.
