FRSC advises motorists to always use seat belts

Always use your seat belts

According to Mr Olatunji Oguntoye, the Surulere Unit Commander of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), the use of seat belts ensures the safety of drivers.

In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos, he urged drivers to never compromise on the safety of their lives.

"The seat belt does not hurt you. Safety is the surest insurance, so you don’t need to negotiate or comprise", he said.

Oguntoye also spoke on the use of fake drivers' licenses, adding that the agency was working hard to put an end to this.

"In this locality (Surulere), Lagos we are battling with the issue of fake drivers’ licences in some quarters and this is attributed to the activities of touts in our neighbourhoods.

But we are doing all we can to see that we overcome it, hence, in our public enlightenment activities, we encourage people not to patronise fake officials.

That is what led us to transform the old licence to this one. You cannot be issued any licence now without physical capture.

If we capture your photograph, we also input your data in our system.

But if you say you are getting a drivers’ licence today through a third party, can you say it would be properly done? How will the system recognise somebody by proxy?

To the best of my knowledge, the corps is not resting on its oars as we try to prosecute whoever is found to be in the web of producing such fake licences', headded.
