The frsc said to receive or make a phone call while driving is against the law, according to the Federal Road Safety Corps.

To add insult to injury, the FRSC warned that drivers who use AirPods, EarPods, or any other wired or wireless earphones in handsfree mode could face six months in prison.



In an interview with Saturday PUNCH, FRSC Corps Public Education Officer Bisi Kazeem said that driving requires total concentration and that road users should not put their lives at risk.

To him, it is against the law to make or receive phone calls while driving.

In the words of Kazeem: So you can’t be distracted while driving. It’s written in the law, so it’s there.

Regulation 166 (1) makes it clear that it is illegal to make a phone call using EarPods earphones or other similar devices.

Clearly, a phone call is not limited to a two-person conversation.

It’s important to stay focused on the road and avoid distractions. For example, we discourage drivers from conversing with passengers because it could cause distraction.

But even changing your cassette (while driving) could cause a distraction and an accident, despite the fact that it’s not against the law.
