Registration of vehicle, motorcycle is compulsory – FRSC
Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, has called on motorists and motorcyclists to comply with the enforcement of compulsory registration of vehicles and okadas.
Zonal Command Officer, RS Zone Eleven comprising Oyo, Osun and Ondo states, in Oshogbo, Mr Godwin Oghaghaoghene made the statement in Ibadan at the stakeholders workshop organised by Oyo State Sector Command.
Mr Oghaghaoghene noted that the compliance of the road users to the rules would assist the corps in reducing road traffic crashes.
Earlier, Oyo State FRSC Sector Commander, Mrs Uche Chukurah said the command had partnered all the security agencies in the state to collectively enforce and prosecute any road offenders.
Mrs Chukurah said according to reports, criminally minded people use unregistered vehicles and okadas to perpetrate crime but the compulsory registration of number plate would reduce road crime.
Some of the commercial motorcyclists at the workshop said it was a step in the right direction, especially the use of crash helmet as it would reduce accident as well change the criminal tag attached to their occupation.
Members of sister agencies in Oyo state as well as NUJ, NOA, NURTW ,ACCOMORAN were present at the workshop.
