FRSC Begins ‘Operation Show Your Drivers License’ In Lagos
The Lagos Sector Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), began the ‘Operation Show Your Drivers License‘ today. Defaulting motorists henceforth run the risk of being fined a sum of N10,000.
The State Sector Commander, Mr Hyginus Omeje, made this known in a statement on Wednesday, signed by the Sector’s Head of Public Education, Superintendent Route Commander (SRC) Florence Edor.
The special patrol code-named ‘Operation Show Your Drivers License’ will last for two week starting from today. It is aimed at reducing the high incidents of motorists driving without valid driver’s license in the state, as most motorists who apply for license never care to go back to the licensing offices to collect their permanent license.
Please, in case you’re yet to pick up your drivers license, kindly check if yours is among the 24,000 unclaimed licenses released by FRSC.
“We are starting our patrol operation by May 20, as we have 64,468 uncollected permanent driver’s license across the state,” he said.
The sector commander expressed dissatisfaction over the attitude of some motorists driving without a valid license. According to him, it is the only legal document that permits anyone to drive on Nigerian roads.
He said that if a defaulter could not produce his license within 24 hours, he is liable to a fine.
