The Federal Road Safety Corp has called on drivers who gamble with the life of passengers over a little dome of money
The statement read
ICE BLOCK TRAVELERS
PASSENGERS ARE ADVISED TO BE THEIR DRIVERS WATCH DOGS IN ORDER TO AVOID ROAD TRAFFIC CRASH
It has come to our knowledge that drivers have recently formed a habit of gambling with lives of innocent passengers
How does this work?
While leaving from point A to B, Drivers who are into this deadly act of gambling will be given a block of ice. The block of ice will be placed in front of the driver’s car. Upon arrival and confirmation from fellow drivers at point B that the Ice block is still in form, the driver will be given a meager sum N10,000 for endangering the lives and properties of innocent commuters.
As a result of this, drivers go above 100kph just to get a token of N10, 000 at the expense of other road users
This act is dangerous therefore, passengers are advised to watch and report drivers who are into this to any security personnel on their way or call 122.
NOTE: PASSENGERS HAVE A VITAL ROLE TO PLAY AS REGARDS THEIR OWN SAFETY. THEY SHOULD MONITOR THEIR DRIVER’S MOVEMENT AND ACTIVITIES AT EVERY STOP POINT, AS SOME DRIVERS SECREETLY INDULGED IN THE USE OF ACHOHOL AND OTHER INTOXICANTS TO REMAIN ACTIVE BEHIND THE WHEELS.
