The Oyo State Road Transport Management Authority (OYRTMA) is set to collaborate with some Non-Governmental Organizations to install road traffic signs and signals at strategic points across the State.
The Executive Chairman, OYRTMA, Dr Akin Fagbemi, said this is in the Agency’s continuous bid to contribute to the actualization of the four cardinal objectives of the present administration and bring to the barest minimum incidents of road traffic crashes in Oyo State.
He disclosed this while playing host to the leadership of Oyo Global Forum (OGF), an NGO, leading the charge of combating road accidents through effective road signs and signals.
Dr Fagbemi also reiterated the significant roles of private individuals, NGOs and Corporate entities in ensuring effective traffic management in the State.
The OYRTMA Boss further said that the exercise would be in phases with the first phase to be pioneered by the Oyo Global Forum under the leadership of Mr Olorunpoto Rahaman in Atiba, Afijio, Oyo East and Oyo West Local Government Areas of the State.
When completed, the exercise is expected to help reduce road traffic crashes caused by haphazard driving techniques due to the absence of signs and signals on some roads in the State.
