Indiscriminate parking: FRSC wants Ogun govt. to erect standard bus stops


The Federal Road Safety Commission  (FRSC) has appealed to the Ogun government to erect  standard bus stops across the state to reduce indiscriminate parking by operators of  commercial vehicles.

Mr Adekunle Oguntoyinbo, the Sango-Ota Unit Commander of  FRSC, made  the call in  an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ota on Wednesday.

According to him, there is an urgent need for the state government to build standard bus-stops across the state that will prevent operators of  commercial buses from parking on the highways  to  pick  passengers.

Indiscriminate parking, he said, had resulted  in  crashes as well as loss of lives and property in areas like  Joju, Owode and  Ijako Oju-Ore.

”We have lost innocent people in  these accident-prone areas who could have contributed to national development while some have been confined to wheel chairs, ” he said.

Oguntoyimbo noted that these areas were prone to crashes because of  pot-holes and sloppy nature.

The unit commander  advised the state government to  build standard bus-stops like those  built for BRT in Lagos State. (NAN)
