It’s festive season, jingle bells, the feeling that Christmas is just around the corner and of course the New year. One thing is dominant this season…lots of travelling…Onwa December (as popularly said by the Igbos) you know what people say about the infamous ’ember period’…high rates of automobile accidents and others. So AutoXpat, your best rated automobile and safety Tv programme, embarked on a safety campaign.
We started FRSC flag off campaign from Ojota New Garage then we proceeded to Iju Garage in Agege , Ashero Park in Abeokuta, Ogun state before ending the flag off at CMS Lagos. We then moved to the Five star Music Fiesta held at the Ikeja City Mall, Lagos speaking with to cross sections of celebrities. That’s not all, we went all out for the Lagos Street Carnival at the Oba Akran Zone also in Ikeja. The essense is to change the narrative of high rate of automobile accidents happening more during the notorious ’ember period’.
Automobile accidents happen every other day, infact, studies have revealed that about 80% of automobile accidents are caused by human error and 20% by by mechanical fault. contrary to the rife perception, there are no blood-suckling demons or witchcraft on the roads that cause accidents.
Obey the rules of the road, make it a habit of checking the vital parts of your vehicle regularly. This will help you prevent accident.
Safety fits like a glove…wear it. Watch AutoXpat this Sunday 7:00pm DSTV Channel 255 and AWA Channel, ch 123 by 5:30 pm.
