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, 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)
