The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Lagos State said it would today start the Phase II of the Operation Show Your Driver’s Licence and Vehicle Licence ahead of the Ember Months road safety operations.
State Sector Commander of FRSC, Corps Commander, Olusegun Ogungbemide said this in a statement issued by the Route Commander, Olabisi Sonusi, the FRSC Public Education Officer yesterday.
Ogungbemide decried the high rate of permanent driver’s licence unpicked in the state.
According to him, the first phase of the special patrol tagged “Operation Show your driver’s licence” showed that some motorists still drive without their valid driver’s licence while some don’t have at all.
“With the recent increase in vehicular movement as a result of Ember months, there is the need for all drivers to be handy with their driver’s licence and a valid vehicle paper as the command begins Operation Show Your Driver’s Licence and Vehicle licence”.
He also admonished all motorists to maintain safe speed, avoid night travels so that they can always enjoy good road experience.
