FRSC Begins Nationwide Restriction on Rickety and Old Vehicles

Date:

The Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps(FRSC), Dauda Biu, has ordered an immediate restriction to be placed on all old and rickety vehicles across the country.

Biu gave this order in a statement by the Corps Public Education Officer and Assistant Corps Marshal, Mr Bisi Kazeem, yesterday in Abuja.

The FRSC marshal said the directive or order became necessary as a result of a trending video of an old car with three worn-out tyres on the highway in Sagamu, Ogun State.

He ordered the immediate seizure of the vehicle and the arrest of the owner, as the vehicle can endanger the lives and property of the public.

“The vehicle with registration number, Lagos AA07AG was not only old but was plying the highway with just three worn-out tyres. The personnel of the agency are directed to be on the lookout for the car and other unstable vehicles plying major roads in Nigeria.

“The operation will be conducted nationwide, and severe punishment awaits the owner and anyone using such vehicles,” he said, adding that the new order was part of a continued effort by the FRSC to reduce road accidents and mayhaps.

Biu said that all Sector Commanders and Zonal Commanding Officers of the FRSC are to enforce the new order with immediate effect.

“As a matter of fact, FRSC officials are now authorised to arrest and prosecute anyone who operates rickety vehicle on Nigerian roads. The officials are also allowed to impound such vehicles and tow them to the nearby FRSC office,” he added.
