The 201 mobile courts set up by the Federal Road Safety Commission nationwide to prosecute traffic offenders during the yuletide season, will begin sitting on Monday, 17th December 2018.
Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi, Corps Marshal of the FRSC, who was on a nationwide tour, disclosed this on Saturday in Ibadan during his visit to Oyo State, in an effort to ensure the free flow of traffic nationwide during the yuletide season.
Dr. Boboye said all personnel would be mobilized to ensure motorists obey traffic rules and urged road users to comply with traffic regulations so as not to spend their Christmas and New Year in prison custody.
He called for maximum penalty for any motorists that assault any of FRSC personnel, saying 71 of his officers were assaulted by motorists from January till date as a result of malicious behaviour of some road users.
Dr. Boboye advised motorists to cooperate with FRSC personnel as year 2018 comes to an end.
He further said the commission has been able to bring down the number of road traffic crashes to single digit in 2018 compared to 2017, saying this was an indication that an appreciable achievement had been attained.
