NAN recalls that the commission had set up 144 mobile courts across the country to monitor and prosecute motorists who violated traffic regulations during the Eid el-Fitr celebration.

He said that among the 29, 13 were convicted for driver's licence violation, eight for number plate offences, six for over loading and eight for seatbelt violation.

Garba said the patrol would focus on traffic violations, overloading, driving under the influence of drug and alcohol and using of telephone while driving, among others.

"FRSC will not relent in its efforts to change the driving culture of road users in the country,'' he said.
