Share This

The Lagos Sector Command of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has arrested no fewer than 110 traffic offenders for number plate violation and other offences  in private and commercial vehicles within the state during the special operation, tagged "Operation Thunderstorm".

The Command on Wednesday began the special operation to clamp down on motorists, VIPs who are in the habit of not fixing number plates and those  who are fond of replacing their number plates with pet names.

Its Sector Commander, CC Olusegun Ogungbemide, in a statement by the Command's Public Education Officer, Route Commander Olabisi Sonusi, said the enforcement was carried out after the Command noticed the recent flagrant disobedience to the National Road Traffic Regulations by motorists.

The operations, he said is one of the Command’s intervention patrol aimed at reducing  Road Traffic Crashes and also putting a stop to the impunity of not properly affixing number plates and other violations involving private cars, commercial buses and  articulated trucks.

The FRSC boss also stated that a total of 110 vehicles were issued tickets for various offences while 75 vehicles was impounded and 35 documents confiscated during the operation. 

CC Ogungbemide reminded motorists that number plate has security features that should not be tampered with under any disguise.

"We have noticed a new trend of aberration and disregard to law and order. A situation where some Very Important Personalities (VIPs) and motorists change one of their number plates, which comes in pairs, with their pet names or their popular slogans can no longer be tolerated".

He stressed that private or commercial number plates comes in pairs meant for both  front and rear of the vehicle except for articulated vehicle number plates that comes in three.

The Sector Commander charges Commanding Officers on improved Operations across the state in line with the Corps mandate of 15% RTC and 20% fatalities reduction in Lagos State. 

He therefore advised VIPs, motorists to use their original number plate which is not expected to be covered.

He urged motorists to call FRSC toll free number 122 for prompt rescue should in case of any emergency.
