INSIDEMAINLAND – The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) will on Monday (today) commence ‘Operation Show Your Driver’s License and Vehicle License’ in Lagos State.
The latest development was made known via a statement by the FRSC Commander, Olusegun Ogungbemide, on Sunday evening.
Ogungbemide, who condemned how owners of vehicles, tricycles, and bike riders ply the road without permits, lamented that a high number of permanent driver’s licenses were yet to be picked from FRSC stations.
He added that the first phase of the operation showed that a number of motorists drive without valid documentation while some don’t have.
He said, “With the recent increase in vehicular movements as a result of the ember months, there is the need for all drivers to be handy with their driver’s licenses.
“The exercise will ensure all drivers have valid vehicle papers. The operation starts Monday, October 4 and will end October 10, 2021,” the FRSC Commander stated.
Ogungbemide further noted that defaulters will have their vehicles impounded until they provide genuine documents, adding that the National Road Traffic Regulations (NRTR) 2021, Regulation 67(1) states that any person driving a vehicle on any public road must be in possession of an original driver’s license.
