The Badagry Unit Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Fatai Adesina Bakare, has warned motorists against flouting traffic laws.
He said violators’ vehicles would be impounded until they redress the situation.
The commander spoke at a safety campaign organised by the command at the Badagry secretariat of Tippers and Quarry Employers of Nigeria (UTQEN).
He noted that obeying traffic rules was the only solution to incessant crashes on the highway.
Bakare said the agency would neither be too strict nor pardon anyone caught beating the traffic light, making phone calls while driving or not using his belt.
The unit commander said anyone caught violating any of the agency’s rules would be arrested and sent for psychological test.
He warned motorists against seeing FRSC officers as their enemy on the road.
According to him, a good number of FRSC officers had been assaulted by violent drivers of tippers and trucks.
He warned that anyone found to have attacked them would henceforth be remanded in jail.
Bakare said FRSC is a leading agency in traffic management with the vision of creating a safe motoring environment and zero-tolerance for road carnage across the country.
The representative of Seme Command of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) Jibuo Thaddeus said the sister-agencies would continue to improve on synergy that would enable them get rid of road offenders and social criminalities.
The UTQEN State Chairman, Alhaji Salisu Adebayo, urged union members to always abide by the rules and regulations of the highway.
