In the statement, the FRSC listed the major traffic offences its personnel will be on the lookout for as they storm the road to prevent accidents and other security breaches.

In this piece, I will list out all the offences. Avoiding these offences is not only to avoid being penalised; it will also ensure that you and your loved ones and other motorists are safe while travelling to your respective destinations.

1. Use of Phone while driving

2. Drivers Licence Violation

3. Driving with expired/ worn-out tyres

4. Driving without spare tyres

5. Dangerous driving/wrongful overtaking

6. Excessive speed

7. Lane indiscipline/route violation

According to the FRSC, mobile courts have been deployed to ensure anyone caught with the listed offences will be promptly tried and convicted/fined.

The FRSC will also be working with other law enforcement agencies such as the Nigeria Police Force, the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), and the Department of State Security (DSS). 

So, it’s important to drive safely and follow the traffic rules to avoid accidents and unnecessary penalties/fines.

The Eid period is a time for felicitations and reunions with family members. Obey all the traffic rules to save your life and that of other motorists to ensure the festive event does not turn into tragedy.
