Ibadan - The FRSC has deployed 30 officials for a week-long special patrol tagged, "Operation Rainstorm,’’ which began on Sunday in Oyo state.
The FRSC Sector Commander in Oyo State, Godwin Ogagaoghene, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Ibadan that the command also received assistance with more patrol vehicles for the exercise.
He said that the exercise would ensure that residents of the state were aware of what to do during the rains.
"The sensitisation exercise is on the road and it is a week to enlighten motorists on the use of wipers and ensuring that brakes and tyres are in good condition.
"They must ensure that their lighting systems and all other safety measures are put in place before embarking on the road.
"Enforcement will also focus on number plate violations, speed limit violation, overloading, dangerous driving, driver’s licence violation as well as seat-belt violation amongst others,’’ Ogagaoghene said.
He said that mobile courts would be made operational during the period to ensure swift prosecution of traffic law offenders.
Ogagaoghene urged motorists to be of good behaviour at all times, obey traffic regulations and maintain safety procedures.
He said all Special Marshals in the state, including trained volunteers, would also be on ground to assist the commission during the period.
