The Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, says the use of bicycle as a means of transport would reduce traffic congestion experienced on roads on a daily basis.
FRSC Apata Unit Commander, Mrs Honey Ogundayo stated this during the commemoration of United Nations World Bicycle Day.
Mrs Ogundayo noted that aside reducing traffic congestion, riding bicycle is a healthy habit to cultivate.
The FRSC Apata Unit Commander said that transportation cost, pollution and urban noise would be reduced, if Nigerians imbibed the culture of riding bicycles.
The theme of this year’s first United Nations World Bicycle Day is cycling for fitness.
