According to Bisi Kazeem , Head Media Relations and Strategy ,FRSC, Oyeyemi says the enforcement was not to inflict pain on motorists and road users rather than for commercial vehicle owners to voluntarily imbibe the culture of its usage and key into it.
Kazeem said the advisory enforcement is a sort of subtle force that entails stopping commercial vehicles, verifying electronically whether the devise is fixed and giving citation to offenders for corrective purposes.
The exercise is also known as free safety checks. In the coming days, the leadership of the organized transport unions such as NURTW, NUPENG PTD, NARTO, RTEAN LUBOAN shall be involved in the advisory enforcement by joining FRSC top officers to patrol he said.
He therefore advised commercial vehicle operators to continually patronize the devise as there is no going back on its full and real enforcement come January 2017.
