FRSC seems to be making a lot of headlines lately over here at Naijauto.com. This time it’s the Ondo division that has stressing out some pressing issues.
The Ondo State FRSC Sector Commander, Mr Rotimi Adeleye recently said that over 4,000 driver licenses are yet to be claimed in the state till now.
He expressed his displeasure at this growing number of applicants refusing to collect their registered driver’s license while a vast majority of others just opt for fake licenses.
During a recent speech, Mr Adeleye said;
“As part of Easter festival patrol, we are going to place special focus on failure to install speed limit device, embark on zero tolerance for over loading as well as driving without driver’s license.
“Right now, as I am talking to you, we have about 4,000 driver licenses produced and unclaimed in the state. Some of them had been produced since last year.
“So, with this, we are embarking on massive enforcement of the driver license, those drivers that had not collected their license should endeavor to go to the licensing office where they applied for it and claim them.
“Our officers and men on the highway will not take excuses that their driver license is at home or is under processing without any genuine evidence,”
He also mentioned that some officers and trained men of the command will be stationed on roads all through the festive period in order to ensure the free flow of vehicular traffic as well as compliance with the Nigerian traffic rules and regulations laid down already. He went further to say;
“We discovered that a lot of motorists don’t care about being on the right lane when driving or travelling, so we want to enforce that while driving with expired tire will also be our focus.
“We are appealing to the motorists that before setting out for Easter journey, they should ensure that the light of their vehicles is working perfectly and the wipers and tires are in good condition too.
“More so, they should ensure that they set out on their journey early to avoid over speeding”
