A new set of directives concerning three traffic violations have been passed by the Deputy Corps Marshal, Mr. Ojeme I. Ewhrudjakpor.

Punch reports that the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) official has ordered the command to suspend the booking of offenders for fire extinguisher, light and caution sign violations.

The Deputy Corps Marshal urged commanding officers to ensure that their staff comply with this order.

Mr. Ewhrudjakpor also frowned against officers that still book motorists for these three violations.

He recommended that FRSC officials educate traffic offenders, apprehended for either fire extinguisher, light or caution sign violations.

All of these were stated in a memo, dated December 27, 2016.
