 FEDERAL Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has read the riot act to commercial drivers and other vehicle operators over the new  issuance of new number plates and “Class-A” driver’s licence approved by the agency.

Reiterating its determination not to go back on August 1 deadline for nationwide compliance, FRSC disclosed that it would clamp down on defaulting motorcycles and tricycles, as well as their drivers.

The warning was contained in a statement released by FRSC Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, yesterday.

According to the release, Corps Marshal of FRSC, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, has ordered the operation, saying that the action is in tandem with the provisions of Section 10 Sub Section 4(h) and (i)of the FRSC (Establishment) Act, 2007, adding that anyone who wishes to flout the rules will regret it.

“All tricycle and motorcycle operators must be licensed before they could be allowed to operate so as to enhance established processes for fishing out untrained and unqualified drivers on the roads. In addition, he stated that the growing reports of crimes associated with motorcycles and tricycles has made the clampdown imperative so that the successes already recorded by the Corps through the proactive deployment of the National Vehicle Identification Scheme, especially in the area of national security Intelligence would not be undermined. In case of crashes, obstructions and other forms of road emergencies, motorists are advised to call the FRSC Toll – free number 122,” the release stated.
