The Federal Road Safety Corps is to begin clamping down on rickety vehicles on roads.

The clampdown is part of the corps’ effort to reduce road traffic accidents nationwide.

FRSC Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, issued the directive to all formations of the corps in a statement by Bisi Kazeem, the Corps Public Education Officer, Federal Road Safety Corps on Tuesday at the National Headquarters, Abuja.

Common sight of poorly maintained vehicles which often break down and cause traffic obstructions was a problem, the statement said.

The public is therefore called to assist the Corps by reporting any rickety vehicle sighted on the road to the spokesperson through the FRSC Toll Free numbers 122 or tune into the National Traffic Radio 107.1FM to report same or any other contravention seen on the road.
