...108 motorists apprehended for driver’s licence violations between July 5-11

The Anambra Sector Command of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has said no fewer than 2,000 uncollected drivers licences are in the Command's possession.

Its Sector Commander, CC Adeoye Irelewuyi, made this known during the “Operation Show Your Driver’s Licence” in the state where about 108 motorists were apprehended for driver’s licence violation.

He said the operation would help reduce the number of unqualified drivers on the highways.

“The FRSC headquarters in Abuja has directed state commands to go after driver’s licence defaulters from July 5 to 11,” he said.

The operation targeted motorists without valid licences, expired ones and those with expired temporary copies.

“Many people we see behind the wheels are not licenced and anybody that is not licenced to drive should not be on the road.

“Some have expired licences. Many having applied for licences and they are ready, yet they have not come to pick them.

“In the state, we have over two thousand uncollected permanent drivers licences.

“Do not wait until you receive text messages.

“l want to use this opportunity to appeal to driver’s licence applicants to visit where they did their capturing and collect their licences.

“The exercise will continue to weed out people that are not certified to drive on the road,” he said.

Mr Irelewuyi said that some of the arrested drivers were booked accordingly while others had their vehicles impounded.

He urged motorists to always obtain a valid driver’s licence or renew their licence before driving.
