Anambra FRSC Warns Motorists Against Road Traffic Violation, Assault on Officials



By Praise Chinecherem

Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Anambra State on Wednesday said there were no cases or complaints of violent conduct by its personnel in the enforcement of traffic laws.

Sector Commander, Mr Adeoye Irelewuyi who disclosed this to newsmen in Awka, attributed the feat to regular pre-patrol briefings as well as in-house trainings of officers to ensure enforcement of civility in traffic rules and regulations.

He however said his men were rather the ones on the receiving end of assaults by some motorists who harass and manhandle them.

He said, “We have always been on the recieving end of varying assaults. We have had instances where members of the public assault our operatives when they try to enforce traffic laws.

“I can assure you that if any member of the public bring such complaint against our operative to the Corps, with concrete evidence, such operative will face severe disciplinary action.

“We are a very civil elite Corps and we do not condone indiscipline of any kind. We encourage our officials to be civil when dealing with the public.

“We hold pre-patrol briefings on daily basis as well as in-house weekly trainings to ensure civility in the enforcement of traffic rules and regulations in the state.”

Irelewuyi however advised motorists and road users to see the FRSC officials as partners in progress and sustain good driving habits to safety on the roads.

“FRSC personnel are on the road working for the public to ensure safety, not to work against the public or inflict pain on anybody.

“The public or motorists should see us as partners in progress, so that together we can reduce accidents on our roads,” he added.
