Traffic Violations

The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has revealed the number of arrests and violations in the first quarter of 2016.

"The FRSC special squad that was inaugurated when I resumed duty in Zone 2 has been working towards reducing crashes on the road.

All the eight commands in Lagos with about six commands from Ogun State were on the road daily and apprehended 4,933 drivers for committing 5,610 offences in the first quarter of 2016."

"Some of the offences included driving above the speed limit, carrying more than approved passengers in their vehicles, driving with worn-out tyres, overtaking dangerously and operating with malfunctioning vehicles.

We believe that the number of drivers that were apprehended also helped us to also educate others who were not apprehended,”Akpabio added.

The Zonal Officer advised motorists to avoid speeding and other traffic violations, saying, ‘‘we don’t want people to die but for people to be alive.’’
