The Federal Road Safety Corps says it has set up more than 200 mobile courts to prosecute traffic offenders during the Easter special patrol operations across the nation.
This was contained in a statement, on Wednesday, by the corps Public Education Officer, Mr Bisi Kazeem.
Kazeem said the mobile courts were set up towards ensuring a safe and smooth 2023 Easter celebrations.
He quoted the Corps Marshal, FRSC, Dauda Biu, as urging the commanding officers to ensure full deployment of staff for maximum visibility.
Biu also urged them to ensure prompt removal of obstructions and ease of movement on all highways across the country.
This, he said, was in line with the operational guidelines of the 2023 special patrol scheduled to commence from April 6 to April 12.
According to him, the objectives of the special operations were reducing road traffic crashes, road traffic fatalities and road traffic injuries.
“The corps would carry out aggressive enforcement including conducting over 200 mobile court operations, with the aim of checking various offences.
“Speeding and dangerous driving/overtaking, lane indiscipline/route violation, road obstructions, use of phone while driving, and overloading would be thoroughly checked,” he said.
The corps added that it deployed 1,042 operational vehicles for the Easter special patrol across the country.
