FRSC warns against illegal parking in Abuja

The Abuja Central Business District Unit Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Imrana L. Ibrahim, has warned motorists operating within the Abuja City Centre against wrongful parking on road corridors, especially in the Three Arms Zone.

Imrana, who gave the warning while fielding questions from City & Crime, warned that henceforth any motorist caught for such offence would be arrested, educated and possibly fined.

The unit commander, who recently assumed office, said his major task would be to ensure free flow of traffic on all the roads within his unit.

Aside that, he said his men would be constantly deplored to clear obstructions on the roads, as well as intensify effort on rescue operations.

While noting that because most of the roads in the nation’s capital were good, some drivers tended to over-speed, which often resulted in accidents.

He also listed distracted driving like the use of phones and influence of alcohol as other causes of accidents being experienced in the city centre daily.

He said his unit had launched an aggressive campaign to enlighten motorists during the Ember Months to reduce accidents.

He further said, “We had motorcade rallies on major roads to distribute safety fliers for motorists against overloading, use of unsafe tyres, dangerous driving, among others. We also had lectures with members of NURTW, the traditional chiefs led by the Sapeyi of Garki and senior police officers.”

He added that he would prioritise enlightenment rather than unnecessary arrests, warning his men against any form of corruption.
