VIO declares that pasting `Car For Sale’ or “For Sale” sticker on a moving vehicle is illegal and a violation of law.
According to the Federal Capital Territory Directorate of Road Traffic Services (VIO), pasting “For Sale” sticker on moving vehicles as a way of marketing is illegal and a violation of the law. Mr Kalu Emetu, the directorate’s Public Relations Officer made this known in an interview with NAN in Abuja, on Sunday.
Emetu went on to say that such act was a violation of the FCT Administration’s transportation master plan.
A lot of vehicles had been impounded for violating the law; and warned car owners to use proper channels of marketing their vehicles, he said.
VIO also finds it illegal for any vehicle owner to market their vehicles in unauthorised car marts in the FCT.
