FRSC proposes N50,000 penalty for traffic light violations in 2020

The Federal Road Safety Corps has said that traffic light violations by motorists will attract a N50,000 fine from next year, noting that the offence was becoming worrisome.
The FRSC Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi who disclosed this in Abuja said that he has proposed to the Joint Tax Board that the traffic light violation fine should be increased from N4,000 to N50,000 to deter erring motorists, adding that his men would continue to arrest and sanction motorists using phones while driving.
The Corps boss further reiterated that drivers were free to use google map but the phone should be placed on the dashboard with both hands on the steering wheel.
