Abuja – Federal Roads Safety Commission, FRSC, has arrested and arraigned 600 motorists before mobile courts between December 20 and 23 for contravening various traffic rules and regulations.
This was contained in a statement by Mr. Nseobong Akpabio, FRSC’s Public Education Officer, in Abuja, yesterday.
The statement quoted the Corps Marshal and Chief Executive of the commission, Mr. Osita Chidoka, as saying that the exercise was part of efforts to ensure free flow of traffic during the festivities.
It said: “Some road corridors, including Abuja-Lokoja, Lagos-Ibadan-Ore, Asaba-Onitsha, Obollo-Affor-9th Mile and Enugu-Okigwe-Port Harcourt highways, experienced slight traffic hitches during the period.
“The hitches are due to lack of patience among road users. Motorists should abide by traffic rules and regulations.”
