Mrs Pat Emeordi, Sector Commander, Plateau Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps ( FRSC ) has advised commercial drivers and other motorists to go for regular eye checks to in order to know the status of their sights.
Emeordi gave the advice at a sensitization rally organised for commercial drivers in Yandoya Motor Park, Jos today.
She attributed some road crashes to sight defects, hence, the need for drivers to constantly check their sights.
“Records have shown that poor sight has greatly contributed to some of the accidents on our highways.
“So, at every opportunity, we encourage drivers and indeed all motorists to go for regular eye checks so as to avoid any ugly occurrence.
“Once your sight is sharp, the tendency of averting a crash while plying highway is high, ” she said.
