FRSC to personalise number plates soon

25 September 2012, 09:49

Niger - The Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), in Niger, Mr David Usman, on Monday, said that the corps would soon personalise vehicle number plates to help track offenders.

Usman made the plan known  when he paid a courtesy visit to the Niger Assembly, saying:’ that is why the number plates have to be changed. Right now, the number plates are  registered with the vehicles.’’

He said when operational, the owner of the vehicle would own the number plate not the vehicle.

The commander said:  “if you decide to sell your vehicle at any time, you detach your number plate from the vehicle and keep it. When you have a new vehicle, you register it with the number.

`` The implication of the new system is that when you have a registered vehicle in your name, you don’t give your vehicle to people you can’t vouch for."

He said that if the owner decided to sell his vehicle without removing the number plate, any offence committed by the new owner would be counted against the former owner.

Usman appealed to the assembly to assist the corps in meeting its obligation of ensuring safety on the road.

According to him, such assistance will  enhance the ability of the officials of the corps in responding to road crashes on time.

Responding, the Speaker, Adamu Usman, said that the assembly would collaborate with FRSC to ensure safety on the roads.
