“I am appealing to motorists to sustain the tempo by desisting from any act capable of causing crash,” he said.
Abubakar appealed to parents not to allow minors to drive their vehicles or motorcycles.
He advised the people especially the youths, not to consume psychotropic substances before driving.
“Even if you take drugs for cold or cattarh that can cause drowsiness, it is not permissible to drive,” he said.
The commander said that since the country is still in the rainy season, motorists should ensure that their wipers and lighting system are functional
“Motorists should also ensure they drive at reasonable speed.
“What makes you a good driver is arriving your destination safely,” he said. (NAN)
