frsc-logoThe Federal Road Safety Corps has warned motorists and drivers against patronizing touts in order not to obtain fake drivers’ license, number plates as it will start arresting those without new number plates from July 1.

The FRSC Secretary from the headquarter in Abuja, Commander Kayode Fanola announced this while briefing journalists on the need to sensitize the public to beware of patronizing touts.

He urged motorists to follow the procedure by patronizing the legally recognized agencies in the issuance of drivers’ licenses and plate numbers to avoid being charged to court. He added that if arrested with the fake documents, it could be likened with having fake Naira notes and international passports.

He therefore noted that the Corps is collaborating with banks to ensure that drivers’ license being presented are verified to detect and arrest offenders, while also urging state governments to consider the issue of the drivers’ license and plate numbers as security concern and not means of generating funds alone.

Comm. Fanola announced that the last day of the month of June 2014, will be the final day for the renewal and obtaining of new number plates and warned motorists to avail themselves of the opportunity to obtain the documents before the deadline.
