Do You Drive Cars With Expired Tyres? FRSC Is On The Look-Out

The Federal Road Safety Corps has said it has intensified patrol in Cross River and other states in the South South region of the country to check worn out tyres and excessive smoke emissions from vehicles plying the road.

FRSC Zonal Commanding Officer in charge of RS6HQ, Port Harcourt, Dr. Aliyu Gummi, said this in Calabar during the commencement of the commission’s 2015 second quarter intra-sectorial intervention patrol in Cross River State.

He said the operation was aimed at reducing road crashes during the rainy season.

Gummi, who spoke through the Cross River State Sector Commander, Mr. Albanus Nwachukwu, explained that the patrol would also make efforts to halt excessive smoke emission from vehicles.

The zonal commanding officer, who issued a statement after the exercise, said, “The essence of this operation is to checkmate crash causative factors prevalent during raining season.

“The patrol will focus on the following offences; driving with worn-out tyres, driving without spare tyre, excessive smoke emission, vehicle windscreen, speed limit, as well as overloading violations.”

Gummi urged FRSC operatives involved in the patrol not to lose focus on the commission’s initial effort targeted at checkmating rickety vehicles, number plates and driving licence violations.

The exercise, which was flagged-off simultaneously along routes ‘A and B,’ was reportedly commended by motorists.

Route ‘A’, which falls under the East West road, covers Rivers and Bayelsa sector commands, while Route ‘B’, spanning through Calabar-Itu Road is covered by Cross River and Akwa Ibom sector commands.
