Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has warned motorists and drivers against patronizing touts in order to obtain fake drivers’ licenses, number plates as it will start arresting those without new number plates from July 1.
Fanola, called on motorists to follow due process by patronizing the legally recognized agencies in the issuance of drivers’ licenses and plate numbers to avoid being charged to court, adding that if the commission should arrest anyone with fake documents, it could be likened to having fake Naira notes and international passports.
He therefore said that the Corps is collaborating with banks to ensure that drivers’ license being presented are verified to detect and arrest offenders.
Commander Kayode Fanola, however urged state governments to consider the issue of the drivers’ license and plate numbers as security concern and not means of generating funds alone.
The Federal Road Safety Commission announced Monday, June 30, 2014, as the last day for the renewal and obtaining of new number plates and warned motorists to avail themselves of the opportunity to obtain the documents before the deadline.
