Plateau FRSC to pros­e­cute er­rant ve­hi­cles own­ers

The Punch - - NEWS - James Abra­ham, Jos

The Plateau State Sec­tor of the Fed­eral Road Safety Corps, on Mon­day, warned own­ers of un­wor­thy ve­hi­cles to take them off the road or face prose­cu­tion.

The FRSC is­sued the warn­ing in Jos on Mon­day in a state­ment signed by its State Route Com­man­der and Pub­lic Ed­u­ca­tion Of­fi­cer, Mr An­drew Bala.

Bala said, “The Plateau State Sec­tor Com­mand of the Fed­eral Road Safety Corps is wor­ried by the ram­pant and in­ces­sant crashes and break­down of heavy duty trucks and ar­tic­u­lated ve­hi­cles within Jos me­trop­o­lis. Crash in­ves­ti­ga­tions and anal­y­sis have shown that most of these crashes and break­down are as a re­sult of brake fail­ure and me­chan­i­cal de­fi­cient ve­hi­cles.

“It is in the light of this that the com­mand is ad­mon­ish­ing all own­ers’ of heavy-duty trucks, ar­tic­u­lated and dys­func­tional ve­hi­cles to carry out rou­tine checks and re­pairs on their ve­hi­cles as very soon the com­mand will carry out a spe­cial pa­trol to wipe out and pros­e­cute of­fend­ers of un­wor­thy ve­hi­cles within the Jos me­trop­o­lis and en­vi­rons.”
