Why You Should Fill The Manifest Form When Travelling By Road
The Ogun state sector of the FRSC has launched the 2018 FRSC Ember month campaign in Sagamu with the theme, “Safe Driving Saves Lives”.
Mr Clement Oladele, the FRSC Ogun Sector Commander had a lot of warnings for Nigerians who would be traveling across the states during the yuletide.
He highlighted the need to be cautious around construction sites and emphasized the need for passengers to always put down their details on the passengers’ manifest before their vehicles leave the parks.
According to him, the essence of such procedure is to ensure ease of identification, rapid intervention as well as notification of relatives of victims of fatal crashes.
“Passengers must ensure to always fill in accurate data regarding them as it is an offence to refuse filling the manifest or providing misleading information.
“They also risk losing claims for insurance benefits covered by the manifest, provided accordingly for each passenger in the vehicle.
“Passengers should always monitor the attitude of their drivers while on the road and report them, where necessary, by dialing the FRSC toll free number ‘122’ even during emergencies.
“I can assure you that if the details of the vehicles are provided, they will be intercepted at the next available check point and the driver will be dealt with accordingly,” he said.
Oladele further implored drivers to constantly use their seat belts, ensure their vehicles were well maintained and resist the temptation to use drugs, or drink and drive.
He, however, warned that anyone that flouted the rules as regards road safety during the ember months would be made to face the law.
