The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Sunday reiterated its total ban of petroleum tanker drivers from embarking on night journeys across the country from Monday, Dec.19.

Mr Boboye Oyeyemi, the FRSC Corps Marshal, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that efforts had been put in place to impound any truck found contravening the order.

According to him, the ban is to promote safe petroleum haulage in the country.

“No tanker should be seen on the road at night, we need to find solutions to incessant crashes of tankers on the road.

“Beneficial as petroleum sector is to the nation, safe haulage remains FRSC concern.

“There is a problem and we have solutions to them, no more night journeys for petroleum products as from Monday, Dec. 19, enough is enough.

“The effects of crashes are quite unquantifiable on human life, the environment and to the economy,” Oyeyemi said.

The FRSC boss also said that a crash involving a tanker laden with petrol would lose about N50million being the cost of its contents and the vehicle.

  1. This people are real illiterates. Which one is safer for humans and passer by is it during the day where we have many traffic and bad road. If one tanker fails the effects is severe.But at night the effect if a tanker the effects is less. Let them do a proper risk analysis and allow tankers to drive at night alone to prevent casualties. Please pass my message to them please.

  5. NO, they should not drive in the day, it will cause more crashes, casualties and traffic gridlock during the day. let them drive in the night with speed limit and fix the road. In developed world trucks drive only in the night, they don't drive in the day together with smallers cars along the same road.

  6. FRSC do not even know there left from right, ensuring tankers drive only in day time during this festive period surely increases traffic grid lock and exposes motorists to hazards of broken down and faulty tankers. FRSC pls use your head
