The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has instructed its commanding officers in a number of units to clear roadways of abandoned and malfunctioning vehicles.

He mentioned that President Muhammadu Buhari had given the go-ahead for the FRSC to purchase more tow trucks.

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has instructed its commanding officers in a number of units to clear roadways of abandoned and malfunctioning vehicles.

This was announced by Bisi Kazeem, an FRSC spokesperson, on Friday in Abuja.

In order to prevent traffic blockage, Kazeem stated that the corps was committed to clearing abandoned and damaged automobiles from highways.

He stated that while it was more challenging to remove articulated vehicles than smaller ones, the FRSC worked every day to remove all road impediments.

The official noted that to help with the evacuation, the corps has tow vehicles in most states.

“As of today, the corps has 28 tow trucks in 23 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

In states where we do not have, commanding officers leverage on public/private partnership to ensure swift removal of obstructions,” he stated. “The tow trucks are mainly in state capitals.”

According to him, if a vehicle is burnt or damaged to the level that tow trucks cannot drag it off the road, the corps will use other means to remove it.

“The corps understands the dangers of not removing broken down vehicles from the roads,” he stressed.

He noted that President Muhammadu Buhari had approved the procurement of more tow trucks for FRSC.

“These tow trucks have been inaugurated and deployed to various formations across the country,” he stated.

“With these additional facilities, rest assured that you will notice a great improvement in our operational activities, including prompt removal of obstructions.”
