  • FRSC warns unrepentant traffic law breakers in FCT
  • Mr Wobin Gora, the new FCT Sector Commander
    of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), on
    Friday, warned unrepentant traffic law breakers
    in the territory to desist from the act or face the
    consequences.
    FRSC officials
    He gave the warning at his maiden news
    conference in Abuja, as he decried the attitude of
    road users, especially motorists, and vowed a
    massive clampdown on offenders.
    The sector commander, who assumed duty on
    June 12, said he identified overloading, use of
    phone while driving and non-use of foot bridges
    by pedestrians as common traffic offences in
    Abuja.
    He said “I am using this medium to tell
    motorists in the FCT that if they want to carry
    overload, go to another state because FCT will
    not contain me and you.
    “I will be out personally for a clampdown on
    those overloading their vehicles and those who
    use phones while driving.
    “No matter how well placed, you are expected to
    obey the law. I am not trying to intimidate
    people but I want everyone to just do the right
    thing as far as traffic rules are concerned.”
    Gora also expressed the readiness and
    determination of the sector command to enforce
    the proposed mental examination on traffic law
    breakers.
    He said that the examination, which would begin
    nationwide on July 1, would focus on life-
    threatening violations such on use of phone
    while driving, route violation, traffic light
    violation, dangerous driving and overloading.
    He decried the level of lawlessness by road
    users in the country and wondered why
    Nigerians obey rules and regulations abroad but
    find it difficult to do same back home.
    On non-use of foot bridges by pedestrians, the
    sector commander called for special task force
    and mobile courts to prosecute offenders.
    He said that “the little days I have stayed in the
    FCT as sector commander, I have been able to
    notice few things in the motoring public.
    “Pedestrians find it difficult to use the bridges
    built for them.
    “If the FCT Administration can raise a task force
    with mobile courts to man those areas where
    there are pedestrian bridges, people will think
    twice before
    crossing roads where there are bridges
    purposely built for their safety.”
    While noting that the initiative succeeded in
    places like Lagos, Gora said the huge resources
    invested by government in providing the bridges
    should not be wasted.
    He reiterated his readiness to reach out to
    security agencies for collaboration on the
    impending massive clampdown on traffic rule
    violators in the FCT, adding that his major
    priority was to ensure free flow of traffic.
    He said he had accordingly instructed unit
    commanders to ensure that their men were out
    as early as 6 a.m. daily on routes with heavy
    traffic.
