No going back on planned enforcement of new drivers’ licence, plate numbers – FRSC

The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has restated its plans to
begin nationwide enforcement of the new drivers’ licence and plate
numbers on October 2.
FRSC Osun Sector Commander, Peter Oke, said this in an interview with
newsmen in Osogbo on Wednesday.
Oke said the Osun command had marshal out strategies to ensure full
enforcement of the law across the state.
“We have established a synergy with the state Internal Revenue Service
to sensitise the public on the clampdown ahead of the October 2
“Awareness campaigns are being carried out by the command to inform
and educate the public on the enforcement plans,” he said.
The Sector Commander said the portal for issuance of drivers’ licence
and number plates for applicants would now be at the Motor Licensing
Authority (MLA) department of the state.
“The command’s enforcement in the state has improved towards the ember
months’ campaign,” he said.
He said that sensitisation programmes are ongoing both on radio and
television stations across the state to further enlighten residents of
the enforcement plans.
Oke, who also spoke on unclaimed drivers’ licences, urged applicants
to locate the commission’s offices and claim their licences.
“The number of vehicle licences issued for example in August is 221
while uncollected ones are about 2,859,” he said.
Mr Oke, however, cautioned road users against road traffic offences;
adding that safety on the highway is a shared responsibility for the
safety of lives and properties.
