The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) says there is a need to turn to bicycle to reduce Road Traffic Crashes (RTCs).

Edo state commander of the agency, Henry Benamaisia, disclosed this at the event to commemorate the 2021 World Bicycle Day in the state.

Benamaisia said that the FRSC, with its goal of reducing RTCs by 15 per cent and fatalities by 20 per cent, supported cycling as a means of transportation.

He noted that it was generally believed that the adoption of Non-Motorised Transportation would go a long way in reducing RTCs and promoting healthy living.

Benamaisia said the advantage of bicycle included the fact that it was simple to maintain, affordable, reliable, environmentally friendly, promotes fitness and serves as a health booster.

He noted that some countries were developing and modifying existing policies to provide the road infrastructure to take care of bicycle lanes and other amenities to make cycling safe and secure.

Benamaisia said the FRSC and the Cycling Federation of Nigeria were working together to ensure that the programme of ensuring that people used bicycle as means of transportation to sustain healthy living becomes a reality.

It's always good for a good leader to lead by example, we have a prime minister of UK riding on bicycle to office so corps marshal can take the lead by riding it to the office just to lead by example as a good leader. grin

I have just copied a letter to several state governors and ministers suggesting that we all rally together one day for a mass-bicycle ride from Abuja to Kaduna, in order to boost our health using vigorous exercise, while also saving money on fuel for vehicles, which contribute to Global Warming.
