The FCT Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Mr Ayuba Gora says driving with the aid of Google map using mobile phones is a serious traffic offence.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Gora made the revelation at the inauguration of the 2019 Ember Months Campaign by Lugbe Unit Command of the FRSC in Abuja on Wednesday.
According to him, the law forbids motorists from using mobile phones in any form while driving, as it can lead to an accident.
By doing this today, we are simply reminding motorists that they must drive with care and observe traffic rules and regulations in order to make the job very easy for all of us.
“If you are arrested this period, you will not just pay fines but must be taken for emotional evaluation test in the hospital to ascertain your mental fitness before we let go,” he said.
He also informed motorists that the corps would soon begin massive enforcement of installation of speed limiting devices.
“We will embark on massive checks of vehicles without this device soon and arrest those that disconnected the devices from their vehicles.
“It is very important that all vehicles should have the device installed in their vehicles.
“The required speed limit for commercial vehicles even on the highways should not exceed 90 km/hr for buses and taxis, he added.
