Its very saddening indeed to see and read daily in the dailies on accident notices arising from motorists. If possible an end must be put to road accidents. That's why I bring to you my observations tips.

Road Conditions

The conditions of most roads is very deplorable, such roads which are too narrow in width should be widened. The undulating surfaces with numerous pot-holes should be made smoother. Better re-surfacing with bituminous coal tar should be done while the narrow bridges and culverts along the the roads should be widened and be built with more solid concrete iron and steel materials. In this respect,it will be good if the sharp corners and winding bends on our roads can be cut straight.
In respect to this, more road-signs should be put up to serve as guides or warning to all road users. Road signs are most important.

Issuance Of License

Only literate drivers whom can read the road-signs and decode their meaning well, should be issued with diving licences. In reference to present situations, many illiterate drivers are issued with the driving licences without qualifying for it. This must be meticulously checked.

Services

I would suggest that, all vehicle owners and drivers should service their vehicles at a regular interval, especially to the commercial vehicles owners. They should maintain a very good mechanical condition of their vehicles, mainly; clear windscreens, clear two (2) head-lights for use at night, effective brakes, good tyres, just to mention a few. If the mechanical system of a vehicle is perfectly okay, with a regular check-up by the road enforcement agency, in short, the frequency of road accident will drastically dropped down if not perfectly stopped.

Cautions For Drivers

Majority of the road accidents are caused by reckless driving, most drivers, drives at top speed, exceeding very often the normal speed limit. Its very common to see drivers driving recklessly, carelessly and furiously under the influence of an alcohol (ogogoro as its called in yoruba ethnic of Nigeria). Always remember the slogan that "don't drive and drink, don't drink and drive.
Above all, always observe the traffic rules and regulations tips.
