Lokoja - The FRSC says 91 motorists were convicted for 113 offences in Kogi during its "Operation Crash the Crashes" which ended on Sunday.
The state Sector Commander of the FRSC, Godwin Omiko, told newsmen on Sunday in Lokoja that the convicts were sentenced to prison terms ranging from three to six months.
Offences for which they were convicted by a mobile court, he said, included over speeding, overloading, seatbelt violation and phoning while driving.
The FRSC boss said convicts were, however, given option of fine ranging between N2 000 and N10 000 while those who could not pay were taken into custody.
Omiko said that the convicts were all apprehended on the Okene-Lokoja-Abuja road, adding that majority of the offenders were commercial vehicle drivers.
He also said that 89 vehicles were stopped during the week, with 53 drivers booked while 36 were cautioned.
Omiko, who further said 20 vehicles were impounded, described the operation as successful with only one death recorded in the nine crashes that occurred during the week as against 21 deaths the previous week.
