Ignorance, in Law, is not an excuse.

Any motorist that violates any of the road traffic laws is expected to pay the penalties.

On federal roads in Nigeria, there are specific amounts that are paid as fines for the different traffic offences.

These fines and penalties are administered by the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).





The FRSC is the agency established with a mandate to reduce vehicular accidents on federal roads, educate motorists and pedestrians on traffic laws, clear any form of vehicular obstructions, etc.

The authority of the FRSC is restricted only to Federal roads and highways. That is, inter-state roads or federal government-built bridges or flyovers.

The FRSC has no statutory mandate, or authority, to operate or carry out its functions on State government constructed roads.

Now, here are 38 traffic offences and the fines issued to offenders.
