He, however, added that in 2016, road accidents decreased to 784, but had the highest number of fatalities of 331 deaths.

He said these accidents were largely caused by human error, like speeding and urged motorists to exercise caution while driving in these ember months.

Oyeyemi said, “Over time, the corps, through research and statistics has established that speed and speed related offences have been responsible for high percentage of crashes (over 60 per cent)and this prompted the introduction of the speed limiting devices.”
