OYO: The Federal Road Safety Corps Impounds 150 vehicles And Arraigns 47 In Mobile Court Over Traffic Violation

 In August, between the 10th and 16th, the Federal Road Safety Corps said that it impounded 150 vehicles and arraigned 47 people in mobile court for traffic violation during a special patrol in August codenamed Operation Scorpion II. The patrol by the corps was to stop the movement of unlatched containers on articulated trucks.

However, on Monday during the inauguration of Operation Scorpion III in the state, Chukwurah Uche, FRSC Sector Commander in the state said that the essence of the third phase of the exercise was to eradicate the issue completely.

He said:

“In our last operation, we impounded 150 vehicles and arraigned 47 persons at the mobile court. We noticed compliance with these efforts.

“The operation has been very effective and we could see that we are nearing 50 per cent compliance. We have been able to make so many of the haulage companies carrying goods to comply with the rules.

“The essence of this Operation Scorpion III and subsequent Scorpion Operations is to make sure we wipe out the issue of falling containers on our roads,’’
