The Federal Road Safety Corps has impounded no fewer than
1,293 vehicles and also penalised 1,402 offenders within three weeks.
According to them, majority of the drivers were driving
without licences, while offences such as lane indiscipline, rickety vehicles
and overloading accounted for some of the offences for which the violators were
prosecuted.
The Corps Marshal, FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi, who said this at a
press briefing today in Abuja, noted that 826 offenders were arraigned before
the courts, out of which 753 were convicted with option of fines.

“Within the three weeks that we have sustained the
operation, a total of 1,402 offenders have been apprehended with 1, 981
offences booked by our patrol men across the country. In the same vein, a total
of 1,293 vehicles were impounded, while the vehicle papers of 138 of the
offenders were confiscated. Let me state that enforcement is part of the
multi-dimensional approach we have adopted to achieve the goal of making our
roads safer,” he said.
