The Sango-Ota Unit of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Sunday appealed to Ogun Government to relocate motor park and market at Toll-Gate axis to reduce incessant road accidents in the area.
The Unit Commander of FRSC, Mr Akeem Ganiya, made the appeal in Ota on Sunday.
Ganiya said that the relocation of the park and the market became necessary because of the defectiveness and steepness of the road from Lagos, Sango-Ota and Ilo-Awera axis.
He said that the government should provide urgent palliative measure to stem the continuous loss of lives and property on the road.
According to him, most casualties of auto crashes at the toll gate axis are motorcycle riders and passersby.“
The temporarily motor parks and market at the Ota Toll-Gate axis should be relocated.
“Even, if there will be accidents, the impact will be minimal,” he said.
The unit Commander reiterated the corps’ commitment to continue to collaborate with other sister agencies to save lives and property on the roads.

Also, on May 21, two people died and six injured as a result of brake failure from a articulate trailer, while on May 23, a trailer had brake failure and two persons were killed and one injured.
