FRSC: Why Your Vehicle May Soon Be Impounded

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has stated its intention to Impound vehicles adjudged as not road worthy all over the country starting from next week.

According to the FRSC Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, who was speaking during a live programme monitored in Lagos on Friday, the body is looking for a way of phasing out vehicles which are not road-worthy, and this clampdown shall commence starting from Lagos state from next week.

FRSC Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, has warned Nigerian vehicle owners on the possibility of having their vehicles impounded

“If your vehicle is not road-worthy, we impond it or call the VIO to come and impound it. By this, we mean aged vehicles and those that are not looking good physically.

“I shall be relocating to Lagos to deal with some of the trucks and containers which are faulty. I have engaged all the stakeholders involved therefore, nobody can come and tell me that they were not informed,” the FRSC boss fumed.

The FRSC boss condemned the rampart cases of reckless driving which he said led to the unfortunate death of some students in Ogun state early this month.

He said: “there shall be physical inspection. If you are on the road and your vehicle is smoking, that is an apparent problem. We are also looking at installing speed limit devices in Nigerian vehicles and we are starting that with the commercial vehicles on September 1.

“It was successful in Kenya, where we trained their road enforcing agency so I believe we can also succeed in Nigeria with this training.”

The FRSC boss also recently stated that he has never received bribe in the 27 years he has spent in service.
