The theme for the 2016 celebration is “Vital Post Crash Actions: Medical Care, Investigation and Justice”.

The sector commander said also that over 1,143 persons were injured during the period.

Oladele said that most of the accidents were due to excessive speed, which could have been avoided.

He said, “The corps, as part of its strategic goals, is poised to reduce road crashes by 15 per cent and fatalities by 25 per cent.

“The command will continue in its effort to prevent road crashes and achieve a significant reduction by the end of the year.

“We enjoin motorists to shun over speeding, be more careful, check their tyres and avoid violating traffic laws.”

He said that the FRSC has enhanced its rescue capabilities by injecting additional ambulances into its fleet of vehicles.

The sector commander said that the rate of crashes witnessed in the country necessitated the introduction of speed limiters by the corps.

He said, “The prominence of speed among the causes of crashes on Nigerian roads prompted the corps to introduce speed limiters to commercial vehicle operators.

“As from February 1, 2017, the corps shall begin the full enforcement of speed limiting device on commercial vehicle operators, wherein violators shall be arrested and prosecuted.

“From October 1 till date, a total of 4, 976 commercial vehicles have been stopped and checked in Ogun to see if they have speed limiter or not, ” he said.

The sector commander said there would be visitation of road crash victims at Federal Medical Centre in Abeokuta and a candlelight procession on Saturday, as part of activities marking the celebration.

In what will come across as a really startling development, a dead man has been made to sit at his own funeral.

According to Trinidad Express, the dead man was embalmed into a sitting position, placed in the tray of a hearse and given an open-air last ride past the Office of the Prime Minister on the way to his funeral.

Dressed in a suit and in a chair, murdered Che Lewis was placed in the back of a pick-up van by Dennie’s Funeral Home and driven around Port of Spain on Wednesday.

Witnesses and social media users were stunned.

TTPS Road Safety Co-ordinator Brent Batson told Express via a What’s App message that the funeral home’s manner of transporting the deceased will be investigated.

Batson said, “The TTPS is disappointed in the reckless behavior engaged in by a funeral home being circulated on social media whereby persons were seen seated in the vehicle tray seemingly as part of a funeral procession. Carrying persons in a dangerous manner is an offence Regulation 38 Rule 17 of the Motor Vehicle Road Traffic Act (MVRTA) with a $1,000 penalty and the TTPS will be continuing investigation into funeral company’s conduct on the road.”

Several videos of the ‘last ride’ were posted on social media, with many commenting that this was “proof that Trinidad is not a real place”, while others said they idea was only novel in Trinidad but was done in other countries.

Lewis, 29, and his father Adlay Lewis, 49, were shot and killed on November 15 at their home at First Trace, Bagatelle Road, Diego Martin.

His funeral was streamed live on social media, but not all the viewers were aware that the man sitting at the entrance to the church was the deceased.

There was also a question as to why he was not wearing a mask.

The funeral home informed that because of the “unique funeral, the church was astonished and refused the entrance of Che”.

Following the funeral service at the St John The Evangelist R.C Church at Church Street, Diego Martin the bodies of father and son were interred the St John The Evangelist Cemetery.

The funeral home also intends introducing a new form of body disposal to Trinidad and Tobago.

It is know as alkaline hydrolysis, a process for the disposal of human and pet remains using lye and heat.
