The Special Marshals of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC has said the reason they are present in major roads across Edo state is to ensure that the lives of road users are safe.

Mr Ekhator said the Special Marshals are always on the roads in collaboration with the regular Marshals to ensure that the roads are safe and devoid of traffic congestions which are capable of causing road accident.

The state coordinator decried the attitude of some drivers who treat his men with disrespect or disobey lawful directives or corrections given to them on the roads and stated that his men were not deterred by such attitude.

He assured that they will continue to intensify their efforts at ensuring that the roads are free and that carnages are reduced as much as possible commending the performance of his men who have continued to post five-star performances in their volunteer duty.

"Our presence on the roads, whether in the city or on the highways, is in the best interest of road users: We are there, not to punish traffic offenders, but to ensure that our roads are safe, free from traffic congestion and to ensure that every road user gets to his or her destination safely.

"We are not paid to stand on the road; rather, we spend our time and resources, including money, to be on the roads to assist road users. It is therefore disheartening and discouraging when drivers treat us with disdain on the roadsor disobey our lawful directives," he said.

"I want to assure you that we are not deterred and we will not be discouraged. Rather, we will continue to do our best at bringing crashes on our roads to zero level.

"I however urger road users to cooperate with us to serve them better, knowing that our presence on the roads and highways is in their interest and for their safety," he said.

"In conjunction with the regular Marshals and other sister security agencies, our men have continued to perform credibly well in the course of their duty. In fact, they deserve commendation.

"They have been very regular and hard working during the monthly national patrol days, during festive seasons when roads are usually busier and at their weekly unit patrols”. He stated.
