“We have been able to conduct series of mobile court sessions within the months and they have been very impressive.

“FRSC is committed to safer road in Bayelsa, for those of you, who drive carelessly and break traffic rules and regulations; you cannot go unpunished.

“Whoever that violates traffic offence will definitely be arraigned and punish accordingly,’’ he said.
