He appealed to motorists particularly commercial drivers to change their attitude and keep to simple traffic rules and regulations.

Leader of the Civil Society Organization, Dr Yusuf John -Suberu said lack of inter Agency Cooperation among stakeholders in the post crash activities coupled with inadequate funding by the government at all levels was hindering the realization of UN Decade of Action.

He stressed the need for international Donors to support government and non governmental organizations for the promotion of safety on Nigeria roads.
