He added that the command recorded 53,564 offences, with 44,269 offenders within the period.

“The last four months of the year, popularly referred to as Ember Months, are here once again.

“Motorists claim of evil characteristics of these months are figments of the imagination of all that belong to that school of thought.

“Nothing differs between the months of January to August and these so-called ember months than the changes in our consciousness and attitude about safety.

“Only socioeconomic, cultural and religious engagements are on the increase, resulting in an upsurge of vehicular movement and careless attitudes. Farinloye said
