The FRSC will launch Operation Show Driver’s Licence on July 5th.
The Plateau Sector Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) will launch a special patrol dubbed “Operation Show Your Driver’s Licence” on Monday in an effort to improve road safety. Mr Alphonsus Godwin, Sector Commander, made the announcement on Sunday in Jos in a statement signed by the command’s Public Education Officer, Mr Andrew Bala.
‘This is to inform the general public and motorists on the roadways of Jos and its surrounds that the command will be conducting a special patrol dubbed ‘Operation Show Your Driver’s Licence.’ “The special patrol will commence on Monday, July 5, and end on Sunday, July 11, 2021,” he said. Godwin said that possession of a valid licence remained a major requirement for driving, adding that absence of it constituted a traffic infraction and endangered lives of road users. He said that the command was embarking on the special patrol to clamp down on erring motorists and stop quack drivers.
According to him, the command will look out for drivers with no valid licence, drivers with expired licence and those driving with expired temporary licence. The sector commander appealed to motorists and the general public to cooperate with FRSC personnel in the operation.
