Following the loss of lives of about 5000 Nigerians in road crashes resulting from tyre bursts since 2010 till date, the Federal Road Safety Corps has resolved to intensify its sensitization and education programmes to ban the use of food-based and substandard sealing pastes mostly used by vulcanizers to fix tyres across the country.
In a statement, the Head Media Relations and Strategy of the Corps, Bisi Kazeem, stated that Corps Marshal Boboye Oyeyemi’s interest to intensify the sensitization and enforcement campaign in the above-stated areas is further reinforced by the House of Representatives’ Resolution (HR.65/2016) to curb the influx of substandard tyres, non-lubricant rims and fake tyre sealing pastes, as well as the use of food-based products on tyres by vulcanizers
According to him, the Corps Marshal has stressed that Vulcanizers are culpable for the ways and manners they improperly handle tyres during repairs, and added that the dangerous practice of engaging fake sealing pastes is capable of causing rusts on new rims, as well as wears on new and standard tyres.
He has in the past met with Vulcanizers’ Association to intimate them of their inappropriate and dangerous conducts.
