The Kaduna Zonal Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has deployed 2,700 marshals on major highways in the zone to ensure hitch-free yuletide.
FRSC Zonal Commanding Officer (ZCO) in charge of Kaduna, Kano, Katsina and Jigawa states, Abayomi Omiyale, made this known in Kaduna yesterday.
Omiyale said the operation zero tolerance for gridlock and traffic crash, which began on Wednesday, December 19, would end on January 15, 2019 with 24-hour visibility on the highways.
He said corps marshals would man all identified gridlock areas to ensure free flow of traffic, saying that ambulances have been stationed at critical points for prompt response in the event of accidents.
The FRSC boss said 14 mobile courts would be on ground to prosecute traffic violators in the zone.
“We will be looking out for over-loading, speeding, dangerous driving, tyre violation, use of phone while driving, seat belt violation and mechanically-deficient vehicles.
“Others are, lane discipline, passengers manifest, road obstruction, illegal parking and road side markets, among other traffic violations,” Omiyale said.
