We’II soon end fake ve­hi­cle doc­u­men­ta­tion - DRTS

Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Abubakar Sadiq Isah

The FCT Direc­torate of Road Traf­fic Ser­vices (DRTS) has said it has put in place mea­sures to stem fake doc­u­men­ta­tion and reg­is­tra­tion of ve­hi­cles in the ter­ri­tory.

DRTS di­rec­tor Aliyu Bodinga, who stated this in an in­ter­view, re­it­er­ated the com­mit­ment of the direc­torate to safe­guard­ing its data­base and equip­ment.

Aliyu said the move would stop hack­ers from ac­cess­ing its sys­tem.

He said DRTS had tack­led the men­ace of fake ve­hi­cle reg­is­tra­tion in the FCT. He im­plored mo­torists to al­ways visit DRTS of­fices to re­new their doc­u­ments in order not to be vic­tims of im­pos­tors.

“Be­cause our data base is se­cured and it’s dif­fi­cult for some­body else to fake our doc­u­ments such as ve­hi­cle li­cence, im­per­son­ators try to fake li­cense from other places. But once they ar­rive the FCT, we use Abuja Auto In­spec­tors to de­tect them,” he said.

Bodinga, while com­ment­ing on the forth­com­ing en­force­ment of in­stal­la­tion of air con­di­tion in taxis in Oc­to­ber, said the move was to en­hance road wor­thi­ness of ve­hi­cles and not to im­pose hard­ship on mo­torists.
