Federal Road Safety Corps vows to prosecute illegal users of sirens.
The Federal Road Safety Corps – FRSC has vowed to arrest and prosecute private persons who illegally use sirens, escorts, and flashers on the roads stressing that the act is an abuse of freedom of movement.
This was revealed by the Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Boboye Oyeyemi, in Abuja, who stated that only government officials are entitled to have sirens and escorts on their vehicle.
The FRSC boss lamented the increasing rate at which private individuals purchase pick-up trucks and place sirens on them with escorts; a move he said is contrary to the FRSC Act.
Oyeyemi warned that the FRSC will work with the police in ensuring that those arrested will be prosecuted and their vehicles will be impounded to serve as a deterrent to others.
