FRSC To Introduce N50,000 Fine For Traffic Light Violators In 2020

Image may contain: one or more people, people standing, car and outdoorThe Corps Marshal of Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi has said that traffic light violations by motorists will attract a fine of N50,000 beginning from next year, lamenting that the offence was taking a worrisome dimension.
Dr. Oyeyemi, who disclosed this while speaking at the first ‘ember month stakeholders forum’ organised by the FRSC in collaboration with the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, in Abuja, said he had proposed to the Joint Tax Board that the traffic
light violation fine should be increased from N4,000 to N50,000 to deter erring motorists.
The Corps Marshal vowed that his men would continue to arrest and sanction motorists using phones while driving.
He explained that drivers were free to use google map but said the phone should be placed on the dashboard with both hands on the steering wheel.
According to him, “You can’t hold the phone with one hand and drive with the other while using google map. That is distracted driving and the law is clear on that. When you stop people for traffic violations, their lawyers would write to you and threaten to sue.
“FRSC has 120 lawyers and I would recruit more next year; The level of violent reactions in this country is alarming.”
“We have noticed the rising incidents of traffic light violations and so, we are going to increase the minimum fine to N50,000 from N4,000. Offenders would also undergo an emotional psychological test at the hospital to determine if you are fit to drive.”
GUYS, IS N50,000 TOO SMALL OR TOO BIG FOR TRAFFIC LIGHT VIOLATORS?
