The evolution of the Federal Road Safety Commission seems to be the most coherent and nationally conceived response to the problem of road traffic crash as there were series of intervention by various states and sectors of the economy, prior to the establishment of Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC). Some of the interventions are;
(i) Introduction of stringent drivers training, testing procedures and vehicle maintenance practice by operators of companies with large fleet of vehicles.
(ii) Between 1960 and 1965, Shell Petroleum Development Company Nigeria Limited ran series of programmes designed to ensure safety on Nigerian Highways.
(iii) In 1972, the Nigerian Army introduced the Army Safety Campaign which ran annually for one week duration. Initially, it was directed at educating Army drivers with emphasis on careful driving, general driver training and vehicle maintenance. The programme achieved good results in the Army and since 1974, it has been expanded to focus on the general public as an awareness programme.
(iv) The Federal Government proclaimed 1974 as a National Road Safety Year, and a National Road Safety Commission in advisory capacity was established with the base at Federal Ministry of Works and Housing. Available statistics however, revealed that there was no significant reduction in crashes between 1974 and 1975, suggesting that both steps did not improve the road safety situation in the country.
